FORTIS FEM FILM
FORTIS FEM FILM is an international film production company based in Cologne, Germany, whose goal it is to increase the visibility of women and their stories in film.
We aim to find larger audiences for the films that interest us: courageous, bold, innovative films that use artistically advanced means to explore the themes that concern us as women in today's society - not only in Germany, but also internationally. We focus on short as well as feature films, documentaries, and animations.
We won the Berlinale Compass-Perspektive-Award, as well as the Teddy Award at the 2021 Berlinale with our documentary “Instructions for Survival” by Yana Ugrekhelidze, and have been active in the industry since 2019, producing emerging talents and their daring visions. Our award-winning feature films, documentaries and shorts have been presented at festivals such as Berlinale, Max Ophüls Preis, Transilvania Film Festival, Cineuropa Compostela, International Film Festival Uruguay, Next Generation Tiger Cannes and the Ann Arbour Film Festival, among many others.
