Go to Services


We focus on director-driven projects with international relevance and artistic strength to create thought-provoking films with unique and intelligent stories and high aesthetic value.

Go To Features

We started our storytelling activities in 2010, when we produced our first short films. Our first international feature length co-production was Karim Aïnouz’s award-winning FUTURO BEACH that premiered in competition at Berlinale 2014. Next was THE SURFACE OF THINGS by Greek director Nancy Biniadaki. Premiering at 2017 Thessaloniki International Film Festival, it won the Newcomer Director’s Award in Athens Film Festival.

Our features, documentaries, and short films have been shown and awarded at international festivals such as Berlinale, DOK Leipzig, Venice Film Festival, San Sebastian, and Thessaloniki International Film Festival.

We sustain and nourish our relationships with writers, directors and production partners – with our eyes wide open for new talents and untold stories.
