Our films as a means to not forget about the past – thanks to many artists and a lot of creativity!
It is widely known that producing a movie or documentary equals working together. In our case with a very clear objective: we want to remember the past to create a better future for all of us…
And in doing so we cannot help but thank the many artists, among them composer Bernhard Falkner, cameramen Jesse Kent and Yosi Leon or costume designer Gwen Mc Gurik, just to randomly name a few, for their priceless contribution. And what to say about our marvellous eyewitnesses and the many actors and actresses who work with us such as Ottfried Fischer or Christine Mayn?
Their invaluable contribution and their ability to constantly surprise and engage us is the heart and soul of the AVG Filmproduktion.
