Two of our films have won awards at EcoFest Romania!

We are super excited to announce that both Arica and Samuel in the Clouds received an award at EcoFest Romania. Arica by Lars Edman and William Johansson won the Special Award of the Jury and the Grand Prix of EcoFest 2021, chosen by a student jury. Samuel in the Clouds by Pieter van Eecke won the Best Screenplay Award.

Congratulations to all the filmmakers and the whole team behind the films. Also, a big thank you to the organization of EcoFest Romania for the recognition!

Dark Rider got out and the Flemish press loved it

Dark Rider, the new film by Eva Küpper has been released and received some well-deserved recognition. The film follows Ben Felten, a blind motorcyclist who is determined to become the fastest blind motorcycle rider in the world.


De Morgen loves the adrenaline: ‘The result exceeds all expectations, now that Dark Rider can be seen on the big screen, you can really feel the seats vibrating during the motorbike scenes.’ De Standaard is equally enthusiastic and praises Felten’s bravery: ‘Adjusting to the whims of life sometimes requires inhuman strength. Admiration is no less appropriate.’

Go and see this film on the big screen.


ARICA receives well-deserved attention

The film by Lars Edman & William Johansson about toxic waste in a Chilean desert town, had her online première on MOOOV festival last month. Since then, it’s going hard for the documentary. She got screened on Millennium documentary film festival and is selected for Ecofest Romania. In less than a week, you can also watch it on the big screen on DOCVILLE Festival 2021, starting from the 9th of June, alongside with one of our other films: DARK RIDER by Eva Küpper.

In light of the release Ruby Sanders, a journalist for conSentido wrote an article (NL) regarding the main topic of the film, toxic waste.
