In 2007 FreibeuterFilm was founded by film editor and producer Oliver Neumann, directors Sudabeh Mortezai and Sebastian Meise, production manager Sabine Moser and production assistant Irina Ivanovic. Their intention was to create a platform for innovative, personal projects in the areas of creative documentaries and fiction film. FreibeuterFilm values a creative atmosphere for production, one in which the filmmaker and his or her stories occupy the foreground and their work is encouraged by a flexible environment.


Lotus-Film visualizes innovative, high-quality films that are thought provoking and stimulating. Films that are edgy, challenging and moving.
Films that reflect and question the themes and patterns of our cultural backgrounds and look across our boundaries at the world outside. Films for an audience in the art-house-niche and beyond.
