...is an artist-run production studio emerging from the front lines of cross-border politics, intersectionality, and late capitalism. Working in the unique US/Mexico border region, our projects are process-driven & our goal is to bring a new collaborative form of production in place of the exploitative one-way dynamic that currently & historically has shaped the US/Mexico border relationship.


We are driven by the necessity for audiences of all types to see themselves represented on screen. By centering the experiences, creativity & talent of trans-border artists & viewers, our studio disrupts an existing system of marginalization and cultivates a community of inclusion. We collaborate with artists who understand and have experienced exploitation and discrimination, to provide the resources, care, and support for projects the Hollywood film industry ignores. From reimagined adaptations of existing narratives to original stories reflecting diverse experiences, Standard Fantastic Pictures is where Freire and Fellini converge. Support all narratives; support Standard Fantastic Pictures.
