OutreMer Film specializes in the creation of feature and documentary films with surprising stories, compelling protagonists and inspired visuals between Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Our films are high profile investigations into one of history's darkest secrets such as 1979, our most ambitious project yet; music documentaries like GUZO NORTH that was just selected by UNESCO to represent the United Nations' cultural values; and JAMMING ADDIS that dives intro the new world created by the young generation of Ethiopians in Addis Ababa; filmic essays such as ART AND WAR about the importance of artists and their work in times of war and unrest; atmospheric insights into women's realm in the Arab world with SEAMS OF DESIRE.
We work in all areas of film production, enabling our clients to creatively collaborate with local talent and crew in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia.
OutreMer's unique position is based on a steadily growing network of international partners, many personal friendships developed over years, and on the experience and skill, entrepreneurship and courage of its team.
As freelancers, DIRK VAN DEN BERG and HENRIK SAUER have delivered dozens of projects in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Joined by CFO and managing director MICHAEL VOGT, their joint experience and skills are mirrored by a mutual desire to "go beyond" in OutreMer.
