Lunamax Films seeks to tell stories that awaken new understanding of the world(s) around us.
Lunamax was founded in 2015 by Holly Meehl when she realized she wanted to foster films from start to finish - whether documentary, fiction, short, feature, or episodic - as long as they had heart and gave her some new perspective on life.
Holly began her film career in publicity at Sony Pictures Classics and then transitioned to film development to work for feature director Tanya Wexler (Hysteria). Holly then worked at Salty Features and is a co-producer on the documentary (Dis)Honesty - The Truth About Lies, directed by Yael Melamede, which premiered at Hot Docs and Full Frame Film Festival in 2015. In the same year, she launched Lunamax and produced a web series called "Young Like Us" which features Academy Award Winner, Brad Dourif and won an audience award at both the FirstGlance Film Festival in Philly and Austin Webfest.
Lunamax's currently has two projects touring festivals in 2018, a feature film called In Reality and a documentary feature titled For the Birds. Both were selected for the competitive IFP Labs in 2016 - IFP Screen Forward Lab and IFP Documentary Lab. Holly is also producing a feature documentary in post-production titled, Jacinta, which has participated in the Hot Docs Forum, Points North Fellowship, and TFI/A&E IndieFilms Story Lab and is slated for release in 2019.
The name Lunamax comes from the two dogs Holly grew up with, Luna and Max, on their country farm in Connecticut. Holly was inspired by their never-ending curiosity as they raced through the moonlit woods each night always finding adventure . Holly aspires to channel their energy, goodness, and spirit as she navigates the world of film. Today, Holly is in good company with her dog Lucy, who constantly guides her up mountains, through canyons and into trees.
