Dear Friends:

As some of you may already know, I have recently launched an online boutique motion picture studio that serves as a platform for the distribution of independent films. The name of this venture is ‘Fifth Column Features’ (FCF).

The idea started when friend/co-founder/filmmaker John W. Yost and I were discussing our frustrations with where the film business seems to be heading. We tossed around creating something that slowly evolved into what Fifth Column Features has become, which for all intents and purposes, is a truly one of a kind platform in the film world. Artists are able to showcase and make money off of their otherwise unavailable work. All this without becoming lost in a sea of titles due to some algorithm iTunes or Amazon has cooked up to steer you in the direction of what films you ‘may also enjoy’. And viewers, for the first time, are able to pay what they wish to watch and own truly independent cinema.

Over the coming months, we will be welcoming some extraordinarily talented filmmakers to the FCF family. In addition to releasing some never before distributed Feature Films, we will also be releasing original content produced by FCF.

‘White Creek’ is the first feature film to be produced by FCF. Directed by John W. Yost, feel free to check out the teaser here (

In addition to feature films, we will have some fantastic short film and music video anthologies by some great filmmakers, as well as other fun things like soundtracks, books and as always, John’s continuing column in Filmmaker Magazine.

So please Like us, Friend us, Tweet us, Share us, and most importantly…enjoy us. Take a tour of the site, and check out some of the great films.

If you know of or happen to be a like minded independent filmmaker that is frustrated with spending so much time, money and love creating something that never gets to be seen – feel free to email me at to discuss how you may become involved.

Just released is Zak Mulligan and Rodrigo Lopresti’s ‘I’m Not Me’ We are honored to have this film as part of the FCF family.

Also, after a few years of being idle, folks can finally get a hold of my own feature film ‘Bonne AnnĂ©e’.

Creating FCF has required an exhaustive amount of work, passion, dedication, love and support from too many to name here. However, I would be remiss if I failed to mention my deep gratitude to John W. Yost and his extremely talented/adorable wife Raeanne Wright, for without whom FCF would not exist. Mr. Frank Mosley – by far the most gifted actor/director I have yet to meet and Gergana Miteva, Esq. for being the chicest lawyer this side of the Atlantic. There are many more thanks to come, but they will have to be later…I promise.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present…Fifth Column Features.

A presto,
Alexander Berberich
