Films Royale is an American entertainment company that acts as both a producer and distributor for independent films. The company was founded by entrepreneur and filmmaker Jesse Barack, the creator of Raccoon Brand, in 2009. Films Royale's first feature, Polypore, was selected for the 2013 Toronto Independent Film Festival and is available on a number of distribution platforms. Films Royale plans to submit Harvey the Great to several film festivals before distributing the film internationally in 2015.

A short film, Ad Men, is currently in post-production.

Polypore is a quirky Sci-Fi adventure featuring telepathy, teleportation and a clone reincarnation. Harvey the Great is a film noir parody that follows Harvey Yeoman, a drinking, chain-smoking playboy who moonlights as an enterprising bounty hunter. Ad Men is a comedy featuring three young friends who create television commercials for big name clients.

Polypore is an achievement in independent cinema. It’s a film made by fans of the genre, and it doesn’t try to borrow from other films, instead forging its own way through a field that’s so often wrought with cliches and worn out archetypes.”
— Jess Hicks,

“The special effects in this film were well done for an independent production and in general this film was a lot of fun. I highly recommend it to those who are looking for something original to watch and fans of intelligent science fiction.”
—Mark Krawczyk,

Polypore is one of those movies that creeps up on you with its stealth powers, courts you for a while and then takes you completely by surprise.”

Polypore is an in recent times increasingly rare specimen of thought-provoking and intelligent science fiction that nevertheless never gets dull.”
— Mike Haberfelner,
