Who We Are

Bunny Lake Films is an award-winning, female-founded creative production company with an equal focus on independent film & television and branded content. Collectively inspired by Otto Preminger’s 1965 visionary thriller “Bunny Lake Is Missing,” Céline Danhier, Rachel Dengiz, Vanessa Roworth and Aviva Wishnow began the company now based in New York City and Los Angeles.

Our feature-length films have premiered at Sundance, Berlin, Toronto, Tribeca and SXSW — and include Emmy-winning MEDORA, THE PUNK SINGER, and BLANK CITY. We continue to develop, produce, as well as secure financing and distribution for narrative features, documentaries and television.

We’ve brought our free thinking, creative spirit, and story-telling skills to the production of branded content for globally recognized agencies and brands including Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Estée Lauder, and Microsoft, and have created videos for Vogue, Rolling Stone, i-D, and Harper’s Bazaar, among others.

We care about building a better world. We’ve produced PSAs for Swing Left, Animals Asia, and, most recently, “We ❤️ NY,” which became New York’s official ad, airing on television across the state and beyond. Additionally, we always aim to include a diverse group of creatives in front of and behind the camera.
