About us

ROAD MOVIES was established in 1976 by Wim Wenders. The Berlin based company has produced and co-produced over 100 arthouse films by Wim Wenders and various other directors, including PARIS, TEXAS, WINGS OF DESIRE, BREAD AND ROSES, DON’T COME KNOCKING and PALERMO SHOOTING.

Documentary films have always played an important role for Road Movies, with award-winning productions like BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB, PINA, and most recently A BLACK JESUS by Luca Lucchesi. Furthermore, the company has become a leader in 3D technologies with the production of three feature-length films in this format. Wim Wenders’ installation TWO OR THREE THINGS I KNOW ABOUT EDWARD HOPPER at the Fondation Beyeler (Riehen/Basel) in 2020 demonstrated the effectiveness of this technology as a tool for storytelling within a museum setting. Most recently, the 3D documentary ANSELM directed by Wim Wenders premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2023.

Currently, we have several projects in development and pre-production: fictional films as well as feature documentaries by Wim Wenders and other talented directors. We are also developing high-end documentary and drama series.

Road Movies is managed by Marc Schmidheiny and Wim Wenders, who are supported by producers Karsten Brünig (Head of Production) and Léa Germain (Head of Development), Juli von Glasow (Junior Producer), and Andreas Pautsch (Financial Accountant).

Road Movies is located in Berlin Mitte, inside the building complex of the old “Königstadt Brewery”. It shares its office space with the “Wenders Images” (the photo studio by Wim and Donata Wenders) and the “Wim Wenders Stiftung”, a foundation which is based in Düsseldorf, although part of its administrative work; the restoration and digitization of Wim Wenders’ cinematic work, is carried out in Berlin.
