Über uns

Chromosom Film was founded in 2006 by Alexander Wadouh and is based in Berlin.
We focus on developing and producing national and international fiction and documentary films with a political attitude and zeitgeist. The great success of Jan-Ole Gerster’s OH BOY (6x German Film Award Winner) and the enormous international festival feedback for Noaz Deshe’s WHITE SHADOW and Gabrielle Brady’s ISLAND OF THE HUNGRY GHOSTS pave the way for courageous films with a strong own voice and attitude.
Our ambition is to tell stories that touch the audience on a deeper level, reaching beyond the screen. We are convinced that the medium film can be an effective contributor to social discourses and needs to steadily reinvent itself as an art form.

Together with our team and our partners, we value long-term collaborations on eye level.
The individual idea of ??each film creates unique needs. Our passion is to invent a tailor-made way for each one of them. Looking at financing and production, as well as on distribution, we therefore work together with traditional partners, while at the same time being open to alternative, creative and new paths.
