The Company

Headquartered in Toronto, Corey Marr Productions was created in 2004 with the vision to develop and produce entertainment for screens of all sizes. Always inspired by the innovative, unexpected and fresh, Corey Marr Productions brings together a strategic balance of business acumen and creative zeal.

Recent productions include Matt Bissonnette’s L.A. road-trip drama Passenger Side starring Adam Scott, Joel Bissonnette and Robin Tunney, and featuring songs by Leonard Cohen, Wilco, Dinosaur Jr. and Evan Dando, among others. Touted as “a thinking man’s Judd Apatow flick” by L.A. Weekly and “a poignant portrait of sibling rivalry and affection” by The Hollywood Reporter, Passenger Side premiered at the 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival and recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and London Film Festival among others. Passenger Side is the winner of the Citytv Award for Best Canadian Film at the Edmonton International Film Festival, and was named to Canada’s Top Ten films of 2009 by the Toronto International Film Festival.

The company also produced the Genie-nominated film Who Loves the Sun, also directed by Matt Bissonnette, starring Lukas Haas, Molly Parker and Adam Scott. An L.A. Weekly “Critics’ Pick”, the film has played numerous film festivals including London, AFI FEST, SXSW and Whistler before being released theatrically in Canada and selling internationally.
