Calvin Thomas founded Lisa Pictures in 2010 alongside filmmaking partner Yonah Lewis. They have produced eight features in nine years, playing festivals around the world. Their debut feature as writer/directors, Amy George, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011, and was acquired by Mongrel Media. Their sophomore film, The Oxbow Cure (2013), was called a “gorgeously hypnotic Canadian curiosity” (IndieWire). They have since expanded their producing slate to include films by Sofia Bohdanowicz (Never Eat Alone, Maison du bonheur, MS Slavic 7) and Lev Lewis (The Intestine). Lewis and Thomas completed their third film in 2018, Spice It Up, which they directed with Lev Lewis. Their latest feature, White Lie (2019), was nominated for four Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Picture.
