Co-financing Activities

In addition to our production and distribution activities, we support external production companies in developing and realizing projects in the early stages of development. We are looking for projects that are of interest to the international market.

We support the realisation of projects as a financing partner within a co-financing agreement. We are always in search of projects in the German-speaking region as well as in international territories whose rights we can acquire on a worldwide or territorially restricted, exclusive, or non-exclusive basis.

We like to get involved editorially in the early stages of projects to ensure that the content works for an international audience. We are also happy to assist as an executive production company on suitable projects.

If you are looking for support for your projects in the factual genre, please contact our acquisitions team.
