Who are we?

Nice to meet you!
We are on the lookout for stories that are unique and exceptional, in terms of both their context and their artistic side. They should be relevant to current issues, whether fiction or documentary, and should be able to target both Austrian/German and an international audience.

Our heart lies in all genreswe work on documentaries and feature films, for cinema and television. Our previous projects have been shown and awarded at numerous (key-)festivals. Our core of dedicated producers steams with energy for real human stories. We enjoy all phases from active concept development, to producing, over to final distribution strategies – we are devoting ourselves to these steps with all passion together with the director and the creative team.
We want to tell strong stories, our audience to be enthused and inspired, surprised, to be made laugh and cry – given food for thought. We believe that movies matter, that they can contribute to a collective consciousness, provoke discussions and change for a better society.

Our portfolio is continuously growing and in the last years we found a focus on films with political and social issues. We dig into microcosms, telling small and personal stories, human-focused, giving a glimpse into the life of individuals within current socio-political conflicts and developments. But we also tackle the macrocosm, try to ask ourselves bigger and more complex questions, dealing with the kaleidoscope of stories of global impact, we want to reveal these existential coherence.

Soleil Film is international. We tend to look over national borders, aim to work with creatives from all over the world bringing foreign stories to the local market. We are searching for strong ideas by not avoiding precarious topics – we’re looking for them. Over the years we established a broad international network, found partners and people we trust in but we are also very open for new co-operations. For us, film-making is about working with friends on a common vision. If you think, you fit within this framework feel free to contact us with your idea.

Recently we cooperated with ORF, BR, Arte, RTV Slovenija, CT, TVP, TVN, Planete+, W24 receiving trust and funding from MEDIA (Creative Europe), Austrian Film Institute, Vienna Film Fund, Ministry of Art & Culture BMKOES, RTR, Wien Kultur, FISA, Tirol Kultur, Salzburg Kultur, Steiermark Kultur, NÖ Kultur, European Culture Foundation, Federal Chancellery of Austria BKA and many other funding bodies.


Soleil Film GmbH was founded in October 2008 by Filip Antoni Malinowski, Jürgen Karasek and Alice Karasek as a creative collective for film production. We are currently working in our Viennese office in a constant team of five people covering all aspects of production, post-production and PR. High quality in production and realisation is guaranteed through our advanced film equipment and high-level post-production resources including DaVinci colour grading.
