About Heirloom Films

How it began

Heirloom Films was founded by award-winning documentary director, Simon Cunich. When his grandma was diagnosed with dementia, Simon turned his filmmaking expertise toward a personal project: to record her life stories before it was too late. From 2 hours of interview footage Simon produced a 15-minute film that is cherished by the whole family.


Heirloom Films was established to give other families the same opportunity. We are passionate about creating cinematic portraits of your loved ones that will live on as precious heirlooms.
