Artists Equity is an artist-led, independently capitalized studio co-founded by Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Gerry Cardinale of RedBird Capital, that partners with filmmakers to empower their creative vision and broaden access to creator and crew profit participation. Affleck and Damon are reimagining the relationship between talent, studio, and distributor via an innovative model that prioritizes creators and leverages a proprietary, data-driven approach to distribution.

AIR, Artists Equity’s first film, directed by Affleck and starring Damon and Affleck, will receive a wide global theatrical release on April 5, 2023 from Amazon Studios ahead of its premiere in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on Prime Video. The studio is currently in production on THE INSTIGATORS, starring Damon and Casey Affleck and directed by Doug Liman for Apple Original Films and, in partnership with Big Things Films, Screen Ireland, and Wilder Films, a film adaptation of the critically acclaimed novel, “Small Things Like These,” directed by Tim Mielants and produced by Cillian Murphy, who also stars alongside Ciarán Hinds and Emily Watson.
