About Us

CURB ENTERTAINMENT was formed in 1984 to concentrate on film production and distribution. A member of the Independent Film and Television Alliance (IFTA), Curb Entertainment maintains a presence at major film and television markets. The company’s record division, Curb Records, remains one of the largest independent labels in the world.

CURB’s exceptional growth is due to selective film production and acquisition, individualized marketing strategies and strong salesmanship. CURB has an extensive catalogue of more than 100 feature films in a variety of genres. 
More recently Curb Entertainment announced the distribution of Word Films' faith based films outside of the U.S


Carole Curb Nemoy’s life in the entertainment industry has been diversely rewarding. During her career she has earned success in the record and film industries as President of both Curb Records International and Curb Entertainment International.

Carole graduated from UCLA Phi Beta Kappa summa cum laude with a major in French and a minor in Spanish. She spent her Junior year in Bordeaux, France at the University of Bordeaux studying political science, and French literature. She was then several years in Los Angeles as a record executive alongside her brother, Mike Curb, the Chairman of Curb Records, where they had hits with the Osmond’s, Debby Boone, Shaun Cassidy, and Sammy Davis Jr among others. Carole moved to Paris in 1982 to oversee Curb’s international record division where she had successes with Real Life’s “Send Me An Angel”, the Bellamy Brothers’ “Let Your Love Flow”, and the Judd’s. Curb Records continued with artists like LeAnn Rimes and Tim McGraw. They have had many successful soundtracks over the years including Coyote Ugly.

Before living in Paris, Carole spent a brief time away from her entertainment business to work in politics.

In 1988 Carole moved back to Los Angeles to assume her current position as President and Co-founder of Curb Entertainment International, an independent film production and distribution company, in addition to her role of international record executive. Shortly after her arrival, the Curb organization executive produced SEX, LIES and VIDEOTAPE, winner of the Palme d’OR at the Cannes Film Festival.
