First Hand Films must make people laugh, cry, fall in love and learn something. About one in twenty films does that to us. When filmmakers take us into a new universe. When they tell us stories we never thought existed. When they take us through hell and back. When they walk rainbows with us. When we learn something about our complex world.

When we follow the hero, or the heroine of a film through their story hoping, smiling, and staying curious. When all those emotions convey a statement, a political one, a human one, the filmmakers’ very own one. When there is honesty and fantasy in the images. And when, after an hour or two, the story culminates and we come back to reality, and find a world that will never look the same again. That is when we fall for a film.

Labor of Love

Our greatest pride is that we keep succeeding in selling those much-loved films internationally and continuously. We keep a lean management and are flexible in our decisions. We cooperate tightly with our producers and are persistent in our line of business at the same time. We maintain the company’s visibility throughout the year and the world, and we operate in a transparent way with the people whose films we represent.

As a result, we have sold films everywhere around the globe, from everywhere in the world, and by now, millions of people have seen the films we believe in. Together with our partners, theatrical distributors and television commissioning editors and buyers, we have brought those stories to the audiences. We enjoy excellent relationships with our clients and diligently follow up with our homework – we know what they need, when they need it, and in what format. And that is how the films we fall for get seen, and shared.
