About Independent Artists Filmproduktion
Independent Artists was founded in spring 2005.
Based in Berlin, we focus primarily on feature films, documentaries and television films, which are both artistically challenging and commercially promising. We are convinced that relevant subjects approached in a universal manner have the potential to reach a wide audience if told with the highest artistic standards and in an entertaining fashion.
The multiple-award-winning production DIE FREMDE (WHEN WE LEAVE) was the first narrative feature produced by Independent Artists. Since its premiere at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival in February 2010, the feature received 47 national and international awards and was shown at over 140 festivals in more than 50 countries. In 2011, WHEN WE LEAVE was Germany’s official entry for the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ category at the 83rd Academy Awards.
In June 2013, Independent Artists wrapped their new feature film ZWISCHEN WELTEN (INBETWEEN WORLDS), which was secretly filmed on location in the region of Masar-e Sharif and Kunduz in Afghanistan. INBETWEEN WORLDS has its premiere at the competition section of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival 2014 and was nominated for the German Directors Award METROPOLIS and the VGF Producers Newcomers Award in 2014.
