CHALLENGE FILMSis an entertainment projects development company.   We develop projects for movies, shorts, and television and we work with writers, actors, directors and production companies to create a project that will attract talent, financing and distribution.   Based just outside Buffalo NY,  most of our projects hope to see fruition here in the Buffalo/WNY area,   where the film community has been growing and NYS's tax incentive program for motion pictures makes working in NYS  a great idea once again! 


We have high hopes for 2018, with "FOUR" being readied for production by early 2018.

Every project involves numerous people, but  our current staff includes:
