OVAL Filmemacher
With offices in Paris, Berlin and now New York, Oval Filmemacher has an international reputation for quality and innovation in factual programming. We supply broadcasters all
over Europe with stories set in North America, Europe and Asia, and have earned a reputation for gripping storytelling and top-notch production values.

Our films are tailored to meet the needs of non-fiction TV slots. Our productions range from dynamic coverage of current affairs to long-term, in-depth documentaries. Highlights of our recent output include the ARTE documentary Human Capital: the Employment Trade, about the global labour market, and two documentaries about American Evangelicals\' extensive efforts to convert New Yorkers and Europeans. These two were used together for a ZDF/ARTE theme evening.

Previous efforts have earned Oval Filmemacher wide acclaim. In 2003, Half a Chance?, a humorous documentary about French film distributers trying to hide the nationality of German films in France earned Oval the talent award of the 2003 German-French Journalism Prize. Our staff has been nominated for the Grimme Award, First Prize of Sehs├╝chte Babelsberg and an Academy award.

We have worked with a wide range of television networks, and excel at meeting the needs of documentary broadcasters. In addition to ARTE and ZDF, stations that have used our work include ARD, WDR, SWR, NDR, FAB, RTL, and ZDF in Germany; France 3 and Mezzo in France; ERT in Greece; Tango TV in Luxembourg; YLE in Finland and FSTV in the USA.

Our films examine universal themes through the power of unique personal stories. Through these programs, Oval Filmemacher has succeeded at bringing both understanding and entertainment to an international audience.
