Felipe Marino (born 1978 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is an American film producer.

Career[edit]

Felipe Marino graduated from the Peter Stark Producing Program at USC. In 2005, he co-founded Occupant Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based film production company.

The company's first film, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, starring Amber Heard, was one of the hot titles at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival and was acquired in a bidding war by The Weinstein Company. The company then produced The Wackness, written and directed by Golden Globe-nominated director Jonathan Levine, and starring Academy Award-Winner Sir Ben Kingsley, Josh Peck, and Mary-Kate Olsen. The film won the Audience Award at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and was subsequently acquired and released by Sony Pictures Classics. In 2008, Felipe was named in Variety's annual "10 Producers to Watch" list.

In 2009, Felipe produced Peep World starring Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson (The Office), Taraji Henson, Ron Rifkin and Kate Mara. The film received a gala premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, where it was acquired by IFC.

In 2012, the company produced Better Living Through Chemistry, starring Academy Award-nominee Sam Rockwell, Academy Award-winner Jane Fonda, Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan and Ray Liotta. The film was released by Samuel Goldwyn in the US and by Universal internationally.

Felipe then wrote and produced an adaptation of Madame Bovary starring Alice in Wonderland-star Mia Wasikowska, Academy Award-winners Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans, Logan Marshall Green, and rising star Ezra Miller. The film premiered at Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals, and was released by Alchemy (formerly Millennium Entertainment) on June 12, 2015. Most recently, he co-wrote and produced The Hallow, a horror film directed by award-winning music video director Corin Hardy. The film had its world premiere in January 2015 at the Sundance Film Festival. IFC acquired the North American rights to the film, and it will be released on November 13, 2015. For the writing of both these films, Felipe wrote under the pseudonym of Rose Barreneche for the latter, and Olga Barreneche for the former.

In addition to film, Felipe produced Occupant's Emmy-nominated docu-series BEHIND THE MASK, which follows the lives and careers of sports mascots.
