RAUMZEITFILM

RAUMZEITFILM stands for cinematic transformations of space and time in cinema. The production company was founded 2016 by Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter and is based in Vienna/Austria. The company forms the framework to independently produce their films as a directing-duo. Each of their projects is based on years of intensive research that reflects contemporary, social and psychological complexities. A theme that permeates all of their works is the connection between nature, myth and modernity. They create cinematic worlds that are always at the intersection of fiction, surrealism and documentary storytelling. RAUMZEITFILM provides the production structures, long-established relationships with the creative Head-Of-Departments, as well as a network of international partners for this working method. 

Their first production SPACE DOGS premiered 2019 at Locarno IFF, was screened at more than 70 festivals and received multiple awards, like the Vienna Film Award as “Best Austrian Film”. It was theatrically distributed in Austria, Germany, US, Japan and several other territories and was nominated for the Austrian and German Film Award. Their second documentary DREAMING DOGS is currently in postproduction and will be released in 2024. The directors-duo first fiction feature project THE GREEN PARROT received the Berlinale Kompagnon Script Award, participated in Torino Feature Lab and is currently in editing.
