About W-film


W-FILM has been enriching the cinema landscape with artistically valuable independent and arthouse films since 2000. Our repertoire is diverse and includes documentaries and feature films from all over the world, whereby we pay particular attention to conveying socially relevant topics and promoting cultural exchange. We do not shy away from difficult debates and also bring controversial works such as Philip Gröning's radical masterpiece "Mein Bruder heißt Robert und ist ein Idiot" or Jan Bonny's award-winning Nazi drama "Wintermärchen" to the big screen.

One focus of our programme is ENVIRONMENT & ACTIVISM DOCUS, which raises awareness of sustainability and climate protection. Films such as "Our Soil, Our Heritage" by Marc Uhlig or "NOW" by Jim Rakete portray inspiring stories and current topics such as the Greta generation and young climate activists. In September 2023, we will celebrate the premiere of the moving documentary film "Vergiss Meyn nicht" about the late activist Steffen Meyn, which has received numerous awards at national and international festivals and is nominated for the German Film Award in 2024. We also focus on debut works and films that are told from a FEMINIST PERSPECTIVE. Our special concern is to present stories that inspire and touch, and also to capture the diversity of FEMALE FILMMAKERS in order to ensure more representation in front of and behind the camera.

But entertainment is also provided! In addition to important food for thought, we offer playful comedies such as Valérie Donzelli's "Notre Dame - Love is a Construction Site" or David Wnendt's feel-good film "The Sunlit Night", which takes viewers to the magical landscape of the Lofoten Islands. With "Continental Drift (South)", viewers experience a satire in which Isabelle Carré shines as a resolute EU Commissioner. To guarantee a perfect cinema experience, we regularly organise unforgettable premieres, cinema tours and special screenings with filmmakers and experts.

In October 2019, W-FILM was honoured with the Distributor Award of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media for special achievements in the distribution of artistically outstanding films. W-FILM is a member of AG Verleih, Filmbüro NW and AG Kino.
