RAUMZEITFILM was founded 2016 by Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter and is based in Vienna. As a directing duo, we created an environment to independently produce our films with a maximum of artistic freedom. We are heading for unconventional forms of cinema that deal with the perception of space and time.
