NiKo Film was founded in Berlin in 2006 and produces art-house feature and documentary projects for cinema and television. Since then we have made over 25 films, all of which except the first two were international co-productions. 

Exceptional films are our passion. Films bearing a distinct signature and a unique identity.  We produce universal stories that take us away to a different world and move us. We consider ourselves accomplices of our writers and directors and help them realise their vision. Our films are personal and socially relevant; they represent particular attitudes, while never forcing the issue. 

They were sucessfully screened at renowned festivals and were awarded in many cases, for example in Cannes, at the Berlin International Film Festival, at Sundance, in Venice and Toronto. NiKo Film was the lead producer on eg. KILL ME and THE STRANGER IN ME by Emily Atef (Cannes - Semaine Internationale de la Critique), BABAI by Visar Morina (International Film Festival Karlovy Vary – Competition), and co-producer on films like DOUBLE TAKE by Johan Grimonprez (Berlin International Film Festival  – Forum Expanded), THE PRIZE by Paula Markovitch (two Silver Bears at the Berlin International Film Festival, amongst other accolades) THE MEMORY OF WATER by Matías Bize (Venice Days), THREE WINDOWS AND A HANGING by Isa Quosja, THE SEXUAL NEUROSIS OF OUR PARENTS by Stina Werenfels (Berlin International Film Festival 2015 – Panorama) and CLASH by Mohamed Diab (Cannes, Un Certain Regard).
NiKo Film celebrated two co-produced world premieres in Cannes in 2017; UNTIL THE BIRDS RETURN by Karim Moussaoui (Un Certain Regard) and PLOT 35 by Eric Caravaca (Séance Spéciale). Furthermore ELECTRIC GIRL by Ziska Riemann had its international Premiere at Busan International Film Festival and the international co-production SUNBURNED by Carolina Hellsgård celebrated its World Premiere at Alice Nella Città in Rome in October 2019. The co-production YALDA - A NIGHT FOR FORGIVENESS by Massoud Bakhshi premiered in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition of Sundance Film Festival 2020 and won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize. In 2021, Tanzania‘s first historical drama, VUTA N‘KUVUTE, based on the novel by Shafi Adam Shafi and directed by Amil Shivji, was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.

In 2022, MORE THAN EVER, starring Vicky Krieps and Gaspard Ulliel, the third collaboration with director Emily Atef, premiered at Cannes, section Un Certain Regard. LA GRANDE MAGIE by Noémie Lvovsky and DÉSERTS by Faouzi Bensaïdi, two other French co-productions, are in post-production.
