“On time and under budget” summarizes Film Emporium’s business model. Csilla and Laird Criner established the fullservice insurance brokerage in 1995. “Movies, especially art house films have always fascinated me from early childhood,” Csilla says. “This passion – the need to service filmmakers’ insurance needs – along with my partner, Laird Criner’s, extensive global insurance background, led to forming Film Emporium in 1995.” Specializing in entertainment, production and special event insurance, Film Emporium’s various services include short-term production insurance, errors & omissions, equipment insurance, directors & officers liability, wedding insurance and general business policies. In the film industry, projects are often green-lit at the last minute, and Film Emporium understands the need for quick responses. Their online system allows their filmmaker clients to access what they need, when they need it. Film Emporium is licensed in 48 states and regularly provides temporary short-term liability coverage for foreign filmmakers who are producing films in the US.
