In autumn 2007, we created a WORLD SALES branch within Kloos & Co. Medien: RISE AND SHINE is marketing and selling outstanding documentary films to broadcasters around the world and is working on international theatrical releases and DVD sales as well as alternative forms of distribution.
We have quickly gained a good reputation for high quality creative documentaries. We operate on a boutique size level, currently taking a maximum of eight handpicked films per year directly to broadcasters and to the most important markets around the world. Often, these documentaries are debut films by extremely talented directors and usually feature topics that can target clearly identifiable audiences. Strong stories for niche audiences are our specialty, but not our only playing field.
Each film we select is special to us. We care for each title and do everything to see it “rise and shine”. We love to be moved, and we are interested in films that dare to be different. Strong storylines with a clear handwriting and purpose. Discoveries from all over the world. Universal topics seen from a personal or local perspective. Youth and pop culture. Films that cross the traditional boundaries between documentary and fiction or animation. Serial productions in the field of popular science.
We sell documentaries all around the world – directly or through partnerships with international colleagues. Among our clients are ARTE, ZDF, YLE, DR, RTP, AL JAZEERA, SF, ABC, JOINING THE DOTS, TV3 and others.
