Make Believe

A coming of age journey set in the quirky subculture of magic, MAKE BELIEVE follows six of the world’s best young magicians as they battle for the title of Teen World Champion. MAKE BELIEVE is directed by Clay Tweel, produced by Steven Klein, co-produced and co-edited by Luis Lopez, associate produced by Mary Rohlich, shot by Richard Marcus, and executive produced by Ed Cunningham and Seth Gordon. The film is available on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and DVD.

After festival successes include winning Best Documentary at the LA Film Festival, the Audience Award at the Austin Festival, and standing ovations at the Toronto International Film Festival, MAKE BELIEVE was released in theaters and on Showtime. Among its great press, the film counts a “thumbs up!” from Ebert and praise from the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal. MAKE BELIEVE was also proud to be part of the 2011 US Department of State’s American Doc Showcase, screening on behalf of the United States in Vietnam and Thailand. MAKE BELIEVE is thrilled to have a new stage musical adaptation in development.
