company profile

Aamu Film Company Ltd was founded in 2001, and we have produced both fiction and documentary films in various lengths. We have both won prizes and made mistakes – but fortunately learned from both of them. We aim to build long relationships with directors and screenwriters who have a unique approach to filmmaking. We usually start from short films and proceed to international feature films in order to make their style, content and ensemble to reach their peak. We both know that content always shapes the form. We know that every film making process has to be custom-made for the content in question.
During recent years, we have produced award-winning fiction films and documentaries, such as THE PAINTING SELLERS (1st Prize in Cannes Cinefondation 2010), SILVER STARS (Best Drama, Prix Europe 2008), CITIZENS (Silver Leopard in Locarno 2008), DRIVER (premiere in Rotterdam IFF 2014) and WHISPERING IN A FRIEND’S MOUTH (Premiere in Berlinale Generation 2010).
