Owner

Kirt founded Area 23a with one mission in mind: to combine over two decades of expertise in producing, financing, and theatrical distribution with vitally important event-driven and issue-based documentaries. Kirt has been involved in the distribution of over 100 documentaries. The films achieve critical and commercial success through traditional theatrical distribution, privately-hosted events, sponsored nationwide tours, virtual screening events and worldwide sales.
