Über uns

Chromosom Film is a Berlin-based film company, founded by Alexander Wadouh in 2006.
We focus on developing and producing national and international fiction and documentary films with a political ethos and zeitgeist. The great success of Jan-Ole Gerster’s OH BOY (6x German Film Award Winner) and the extensive international festival feedback for Noaz Deshe’s WHITE SHADOW and Gabrielle Brady’s ISLAND OF THE HUNGRY GHOSTS, as well as the theatrical success of BORGA by York-Fabian Raabe pave the way for further courageous films with powerful voices and singular penmanship.
In collaborating with our team and our partners, we value long-term alliances on eye level. Every project has its own unique individual needs. Our passion is to come up with tailor-made answers to each one of them. In terms of financing and production, as well as distribution, we therefore cooperate with traditional partners, while simultaneously being open to alternative, creative and newer pathways.
