The first film started under the company was Cochochi, a production with Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna’s production company Canana, which won the Discovery Award at the Toronto Film Festival in 2007, in addition to the Grand Jury Prize at the Miami Film Festival in 2008. Most recently the company produced Harmony Korine’s Trash Humpers, which was awarded the Grand Jury prize at the CPH:DOX Film Festival in 2009. Alcove Entertainment is currently in post-production for The Caller, a supernatural thriller directed by Matthew Parkhill and written by Sergio Casci.
