Limitless Films, LLC

Founded in 2010 by filmmaker Barry Worthington, Limitless Films, LLC is an international award-winning small independent film production company. The company is based in the multiculturally rich community of the greater Gaithersburg, Maryland area,  where Worthington first picked up a camera at age six and never stopped. Today, the work of Limitless Films, Barry Worthington, and Collaborators has pushed beyond borders, crafting meaningful films that have earned over 140 Official Selections, Awards, and Honors from film festivals, audiences, and organizations around the world. We look forward to sharing these films with you!


The films have reached from Gaithersburg High School’s auditorium in 2005 to venues like the Anthology Archives in New York City, to film festivals as far away as India, and to Hollywood icons like the TCL Chinese Theater.

In addition to filmmaking, Barry Worthington serves as Director on select episodes of White House Chronicle on PBS and other television programming as well as video production. Additionally, he served as the Festival Director for the relaunch of the Film Crash Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2014 and has served as a festival judge and PitchFest panelist at the Women and Minorities in Media Festival, and has given talks about film at various organizations.


Worthington also blends filmmaking and education, starting when he was still in High School in 2005 at age 16, serving as a Teacher Apprentice to one of his earliest mentors for an English Speakers of Foreign Languages course. The course utilized film as a means of understanding and uniting cultures. Since 2014, beginning when he was 26 years old, he has served as an adjunct professor at his alma mater of Towson University for film pre-production, production, and post-production courses, film theory courses, the relationship of film, media, society, history, and culture courses, as well as supervising student internships. Worthington has also served as an adjunct film/art professor at Howard Community College beginning in 2016. Beginning Spring 2020, he has taught filmmaking at Montgomery College, close to his hometown community. Beginning 2021, he has taught film production, screenwriting, pre-production and post-production courses at American University.


He earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronic Media and Film from Towson University in 2010, studied Directing at UCLA Extension for a semester in 2013 , and earned his Master of Fine Arts degree in Film and Electronic Media from American University in May of 2018. He was also among the first Directing, Producing, filmmaking, and business cohorts of Sundance Collab beginning in early Spring of 2020.
