Ramfis Myrthil is a New York-based filmmaker who loves telling New York stories. He works to produce narrative features that reflect the best, most captivating parts of his community — passion, integrity, and honor. A founding partner and co-President of Beast of the East Productions (BOTEP), the highlights of Ramfis’ career are ever-growing. He had the privilege to work on and produce the Mary Pickford biopic WHY NOT CHOOSE LOVE: A MARY PICKFORD MANIFESTO.
Most recently, Ramfis went to The 2018 Sundance Film Festival with A BOY, A GIRL, A DREAM, which placed among the top 18 films for the entire festival, and has since been picked up by Samuel Goldwyn Films and will be showing in theaters this Fall. THE BROKEN ONES, which he produced, sold out the opening night of The SOHO International Film Festival 2017, and is currently set for domestic, as well as SouthAfrican and Chinese distribution.
His previous film, GOOD BUSINESS featured Academy Award winner Mercedes Ruehl, winning two Best Comedy awards before being picked up by Shorts International. Ramfis’ proudest achievements are producing The Zombie’s first-ever music video ANY OTHER WAY, and premiering LOVE AND THE SMALL PRINT, at Cannes, where Shorts International picked it up for worldwide distribution.
Ramfis’ company, BOTEP, produced BRIDGE AND TUNNEL, earning 12 awards and 30+ nominations across 40+ festivals, and a limited theatrical run before being picked up by Amazon. His continued growth and success in the film industry earned him a spot in Stars’ 2018 40 Under 40 list.
