Andere Filme is an International Film Production Company and Writing Incubator.
What makes us human?
This is the driving question behind what we do.
Finding the stories of tomorrow, with relevant social topics, told in an entertaining, yet emotional way, this is what we are dedicated to.
What makes us different?
We have a great sense for timely stories and listen carefully to what surrounds us.
We always let our hearts pick the stories we want to tell.
We provide an inspiring home for storytellers to strive and excecute their vision fearlessly.
We embrace unconventional storytelling.
We believe stories can be relevant and entertaining at the same time.
We train and support writers to find their voice
We help writers and directors to find each other
We make movies we are passionate about
We are incubators that focus on upcoming new talent. The focus is on “character-driven” stories that tell honestly about life and show courageous perspectives and thus inspire.
We don't believe in labeling, thus genre, length or format play a subordinate role for us. Some films work better as documentaries, others better as horror films, comedies, or even short films.
We work with filmmakers who have their own voice, passion for filmmaking and for life itself.
