Sydney-based film production company founded in 1996 by Vincent Sheehan, Liz Watts, and Anita Sheehan. In 2007 they established the distribution and rights-management company Jetty Distribution.

In June 2020, it was announced that Porchlight would cease operations, and the founding partners would seek new individual opportunities. The company produced works that had already been in development into 2021, including Preppers.
