company profile

Catpics, founded in 1984, specialized in quality feature films, documentaries and high-end drama with commercial appeal. Among other things, it was responsible for the production of the Oscar winner JOURNEY OF HOPE by Xavier Koller and produced two of the most successful Swiss films with LATE BLOOMERS by Bettina Oberli and MANI MATTER - WHY ARE YOU SO SAD? by Friedrich Kappeler, while also preparing for a generation handover with Sarah Born. In 2021 Rajko Jazbec and Dario Schoch merged their former Company CognitoFilms with Catpics and together with Sarah Born, they took over all projects and film rights of both companies. The recent projects include co-productions with Germany, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic and Serbia. The company is dedicated to collaborating with like-minded international and domestic creatives and partners to bring great stories to the screen.
