Hesse Film stands for the development and production of films with relevant content.
Our films may surprise, touch, amuse and shake. We regard artistic and commercial demands as both a challenge and an opportunity. Hesse Film works actively with film artists and cultivates an constructive exchange.
The development and creative production processes are important elements of our work. Whether debut film, complex large-scale production or international co-production - passion extends borders and makes dreams come true.
