Equality in Filmmaking
Equitas Entertainment Partners believes films can have a positive social impact by exploring facets of lives often overlooked and also by the manner in which we make our films. Our model endeavors to prove that stories can be entertaining, thought provoking, socially responsible and fiscally profitable. Gender pay equality matched with opportunities for the under-represented in front of and behind the camera makes a more rounded work environment and serves the project at every level.
We’re committed to improving society through our donations to causes that promote our mission.
Investors can participate in our exciting film investment opportunities with full transparency.
We’ll consider participating in projects that have approved scripts with an attached lead and/or investor.
Equitas Entertainment was formed when Holly Levow and Paul Kampf met to discuss the development of their eventual first film together, Best Fake Friends. It became obvious that they wanted to make this a long term partnership as they share the belief in equality of actor's pay. The company has completed one movie, is in post-production for its second movie, and is evaluating its next project.
Holly Levow is an attorney and business woman involved in high-tech startups who created Equitas to be involved in filmmaking while pursuing her philanthropic goals.
Paul Kampf is a 25-year veteran in the entertainment industry. He is an actor, director, writer, producer, and a teacher at his own acting and production training studio.
Tom Sperry is a venture capitalist to high-tech startups who is a co-founder of Equitas and the adviser on financial matters
