As a young Hessian production company, Plotlessfilm focuses on the interface between entertaining genre film and artistic arthouse. As a self-determined platform, we offer a contact point for the development and production of sophisticated documentary and feature films as well as series formats. Our goal is to support and promote regional talents as well as to establish ourselves on the film market through national and international co-productions with experienced filmmakers.
Artistic independence and collective working methods are in the foreground and promote new synergies. Creative exchange and joint development with our partners is an elementary component of our concept. The resulting films tell extraordinary and stirring stories, always driven by the question: What does it mean to be human?
Participation in the film landscape of Hessia was already a high priority for us before we were founded. Julian Gerchow, Maximilian Hasenstab and Dascha Petuchow got to know each other during film projects at the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden and subsequently decided to establish Plotlessfilm on site. Because of the positive reorientation and strengthening of the Hessian film scene, we saw the opportunity to carefully build a sustainable company structure. Director and producer Tom Schreiber, who was already involved in the university projects of the founding members as a lecturer, also became a permanent part of Plotlessfilm in February 2022.
With the mixture of young talent and experience, we develop and produce step by step, stories in and out of Hessia.
