The first official project under the new label will be 'The Eyes of My Mother,' which will have its premiere at Sundance.

Borderline Films, the filmmaking collective behind such movies as Martha Marcy May Marlene and James White, is launching a new label called Borderline Presents.

Under Borderline Presents, founding members Josh Mond, Sean Durkin and Antonio Campos will executive produce select projects. 

"We started Borderline Films so that we had each other's support and felt safe making the films we wanted to make,” said Mond on behalf of the group. “We've been fortunate enough to have all made our first feature and want to use our experience to provide that same kind of support to help other like-minded filmmakers, whether they be our contemporaries or from the next generation of young directors."

Borderline Presents' first official project will be Nicolas Pesces' The Eyes of My Mother, which will debut at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival in the Next section.

Borderline Films' most recent feature, Campos' Christine, starring Rebecca Hall and Michael C. Hall, also will have its world premiere at Sundance, which runs Thursday through Jan. 31.
