Philippe Bober



Philippe Bober started Coproduction Office in 1987. After launching the sales division of Coproduction Office one year later, he acquired world distribution rights for films by Lars von Trier, Nanni Moretti, Aki and Mika Kaurismäki, and Wolfgang Becker. The company’s first project, "Europa" by Lars von Trier, won the Cannes Jury Prize 1991. After "The Kingdom" and "Breaking the Waves" , Philippe worked as a producer (or co-producer) with Carlos Reygadas, Roy Andersson, Jessica Hausner, Kornél Mundruczó and Ulrich Seidl. Coproduction Office’s slate also includes international sales for films by, among others, Takashi Miike, Cristi Puiu and Corneliu Porumboiu. The company is the smallest of the established sales and production companies, and a home for radical arthouse films, where talent is nurtured. "The Man Who Hides The Forest" is the company’s first production with a French filmmaker.
