M.Y.R.A. ENTERTAINMENT is an independent motion picture and television production company in NEW YORK and LONDON, dedicated to advancing the understanding among countries and cultures with locally inspired entertaining stories free of graphic and verbal violence.  Projects include features, shorts, documentaries, video art and television series. 

We invite our audiences on journeys around the world and through time, discovering sights, sounds and people whose varieties offer the most powerful inspiration of all, true to our motto "The Camera Knows No Flag." 

We believe the powerful audiovisual medium must be used responsibly. We exclude graphic and verbal violence in an effort to contribute to the wellbeing of society, and children in particular. 

We know magic lies in fostering experienced as well as inexperienced colleagues and in celebrating the equality and diversity of the world around us.

We produce nonviolent features, shorts, documentaries, video art and television series with a global outlook and stories for all generations.
