KeyFilm producers, nominated for an Oscar, winner of the Crystal Bear and 3 times the Prix Europe, have built an extensive international network of co-producers, funds and financiers and (co-)produced numerous feature films, tv series and documentaries. Vital to their approach is the close collaboration with writers and directors to develop intelligent, characterdriven audience favourites (Soof 1 and Soof 2 €14 million box office The Netherlands, Ventoux) and accessible art-house films (Nena, Berlinale Generation Plus 2014, Beyond Sleep, opening film IFFR 2016, The Idol, TIFF 2016 and The Reports on Sarah and Saleem, Tiger Jury Award Scenario IFFR 2018).
