About us

In 2009, Marcel Lenz and Guido Schwab incorporated ostlicht filmproduktion GmbH. From 2003 to 2009 projects were developed and produced together with author and director Hagen Keller under the label of ostlicht filmproduktion; Keller, Lenz, Schwab GbR. Main focus of ostlicht filmproduktion is the development and production of feature films for Cinema and TV.

ยปCinema to us is the most beautiful way to travel the world and beyond. It is a metaphor of life, of a multitude of possibilities, of exchange, relief, orientation and inspiration. We love cinema and we love stories and we do what we love with a clear vision. We want to tell dramatic stories for young and old, we want to move and enthuse. A close collaboration with reknown filmmakers is as important to us as the promotion of creative talent, decent handcraft, detailed planning and a great deal of endurance."
