Corporate Philosophy and Profile

The Sakura Filmproduktion e.K. was established July 1st 2007 in Berlin. The corporate mission is the production of high-quality movies for mature audiences. Hereby solving the alleged contradiction between commercialization and artistry. A cornerstone of this quality is our own script development. In a medium term, we plan to establish our enterprise throughout Germany, but also operate as co-producer in international productions. We would like to do business with like-minded people, either in the production of movies or TV-projects. Besides our debut project, the multiple award winning short film Leben! - Touching Life, we finished our first feature-lenght movie INNENKIND which had its Market Premiere at the Marché du Film during the 2014 Film Festival in Cannes in May.
