Selected independent productions with high potential for theatrical releases

Koch Media has been publishing selected independent productions in German cinemas since late 2007. The success  is due to the careful selection of sophisticated films with a high potential for theatrical releases, and diligently developed and individually planned marketing and exploitation strategies for each and every title. We focus on intense public relations work as well as creative media and advertising partnerships. Together with our booking and billing partners, we work closely with cinema operators to make the most of any film's potential. Thus, Koch Media has been able to establish itself as an independent theatrical distribution company that will continue to contribute to the diversity of the cinema.

In addition to theatrical releases, Koch Media presents a number of films at national and international film festivals, and licenses film rights to other theatrical distributors.

Previous and coming highlights

Koch Media's theatrical releases to date include Sidney Lumet's thriller Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, the Ben Kingsley comedy You Kill Me, the remarkable science fiction opus Moon, and the wartime drama Brothers with its outstanding cast including Natalie Portman, Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal. 

Highlights planned for 2011 include Mr. Nice, the movie adaptation of the legendary autobiography of Howard Marks, the Al Capone of drug trafficking, and the financial thriller Margin Call starring Demi Moore, Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany and Jeremy Irons, which celebrated its international premiere at this year's Berlin International Film Festival competition.
