About Theo Leipert

Born and raised in Coburg-Franconia. Have been working in the German film industry for more than 20 years now.

Have produced and directed shorts, have written scripts.

Have done lots of TV fiction in many different roles in different countries. Work placements include productions in the UK, France, Spain, Argentina, Chile, Grenada, Thailand.

Have managed the main cinema of the Berlin International Film Festival for ten years where I was in charge for the red carpet action and the smooth running of more than 250 world premieres in the official competition program.

Beside some free-lance work for German production houses I own a service production company in Berlin providing production services for international clients.
