Welcome to the Rebelution!

Team Rebelution Films
Team Rebelution Films is an award-winning Independent Film Production Company based in Los Angeles, CA. Our company was founded in 2017 by Esther Mira, Poonam Basu, and Austin Dragovich. The three joined forces to compete in the 48 Hour Film Project. United by their mutual love for film, a hunger for more diverse narratives, and the desire to create the absolute best film they possibly could in forty-eight hours, they assembled a driven team of passionate, like-minded professionals, and the race was on! Since then, we have shot and produced a number of award-winning films. We work hard to encompass an equal environment for every member of our team in all aspects of the films we create both in front of, and behind the camera. We are so proud of our team's hard work, dedication, and undeniable talent!
