Our Story

What We Do

Mint Farm Films creates unique and compelling sports documentary content and facilitates distribution and funding to further the sports-based creative arts. Our biographical focus is on Hall of Fame-caliber athletes, supplemented with additional films on broader issues and historical sports developments. Our subjects have significant input into the creative process, making them comfortable their legacies will be managed appropriately. In a Players’ Tribune world, where athletes have more control than ever over their self-presentation, such an approach helps ensure participation.

Our Value

The sports documentary genre is in its heyday, but as yet nobody has established themselves as the leader in biography-style pieces about top-level sports figures. We plan to change that. Demand for original content of any kind is at an all-time high, and content that comes with the pre-existing name recognition and compelling story lines our athletes provide is especially valuable. A package that includes a film plus ancillary digital content is appealing to platforms like:   

  • Broadcast and cable networks, in the U.S. and beyond
  • Streaming services, including Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Facebook
  • Sponsor-controlled channels, including company websites and social media
  • Athlete- and team-controlled channels
