We create films that both, entertain and inspire their audiences, films daring to be different, whether visually, in their content or in the ways they are produced.
Port au Prince Film & Kultur Produktion GmbH (Port au Prince) is a port for voyagers united by one great passion – Film. To develop films and stories, to produce and to reach out to a big audience is our special privilege. The more passionate a story is being told, the more the audience will be emotionally touched by it. For our team, this means the obligation to produce and to distribute our films with the highest level of passion.
People and their stories constitute the main subject of our work. The founding of our company gave birth to the idea of a “Creative Factory”, in which individual people of the film industry feel the obligation to maintain a platform for professional exchange and collaboration. Providing space for creativity and a short process of decision-making are essential for us. This does not only influence our projects but also our way to produce and create.
Port au Prince was founded in 2008 by Oliver Rihs and René Römert. In 2010 the creative producer and dramatic advisor Melanie Möglich and producer Jan Krüger, joined the company as partners. Along with producer Jörg Trentmann who joined in 2017, Jan Krüger is also the CEO of the company.
In 2012, our distribution company Port au Prince Pictures GmbH was founded, offering high-profile and awarded national and international projects in its portfolio.
