Truth is stronger than fiction

We operate on a boutique-size level, currently releasing a maximum of 4 handpicked films per year, always accompanied by a tailor-made outreach campaign and a unique marketing strategy.

Our successful theatrical releases include the Finnish documentary comedy My Stuff, the multi-award-winning Last Men in Aleppo, Raving Iran, and festival audience darlings such as Hip Hop-eration, Chuck Norris vs. Communism and Transit Havanna.

We truly believe that "truth is stronger than fiction".
