Based in Zurich, Switzerland, Ensemble Film combines creative competence in all artistic and practical aspects of film production. We stand for documentary and fictional auteur films with their own signature. We are convinced that in our fast-paced times, well-told, cinematically realized stories have a lasting impact on audiences. Together with our talents we constitute a dedicated ensemble.
