Conquering Lion Pictures (CLP) is an independent film production company founded by Clement Virgo and Damon D'Oliveira.


CLP have produced or co-produced a number of noteworthy films. Poor Boy's Game (2007), directed by Virgo, premiered at the 2007 Berlin International Film Festival as a "Panorama Special Selection", and was later presented as a Special Selection at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival. Lie with Me (2005) premiered at the 2006 Berlin International Film Festival as a "Panorama Selection". It caused a stir at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival for its portrayal of explicit sexual themes, and has since been distributed internationally in over 30 territories and sold to Showtime.

CLP's latest project is The Book of Negroes, based on the Lawrence Hill novel of the same name. Hill's novel won the 2009 Canada Reads contest as well as the Commonwealth Writers' Prize in 2008.

Other upcoming feature projects include the lesbian western I Shot the Sheriff, and an urban music drama, Enter the Cipher, which was selected for the 2010 Tribeca All Access program.
