CineEurope to honor Germany's Constantin Film

April 28, 2014

CineEurope will present its 2014 “Independent Film Award” to Constantin Film at the event’s final night awards ceremony and dinner reception on June 19 at the Centre Convencions Internacional Barcelona (CCIB) in Barcelona, Spain. The award will be accepted by Constantin Film’s executive board chairman, Martin Moszkowicz.

For the last 30 years, Constantin Film has played a key role in the development of the film industry both in Germany and abroad, becoming the most successful independent production and distribution company in the German media landscape.

Since its founding by Bernd Eichinger in 1977 and under the leadership of Martin Moszkowicz, Constantin Film has become known for major hits, including early successes The Never Ending Story and The Name of the Rose, the international Resident Evil franchise, as well as the recent German box-office successes Türkisch für Anfänger and Fack Ju Göhte. Most recent Constantin co-productions include Need for Speed and Pompeii.

Constantin Film’s movie productions and distribution titles include comedies, adventure movies, family entertainment, action and horror movies, thrillers, dramas, art-house films, and film adaptations. Six of the top 10 German blockbusters of the last 20 years were produced by Constantin Film.

“Constantin Film’s recent successes have set them apart from all other independent studios in the region,” notes Robert Sunshine, managing director of CineEurope. “We are incredibly delighted that our partners at UNIC have chosen them as the recipient of this year’s CineEurope Independent Film Award.”

"Constantin Film is a remarkable European success story. We are very happy that they have accepted the award, which demonstrates UNIC's continued support for independent production and distribution companies in Europe,” states Phil Clapp, president of UNIC. “Constantin Film has been at the cutting edge of highly successful and creative film production and distribution for decades. It is the only company in the German-speaking region that has successfully achieved this at an international level, both with films that reflect European realities as well as with international hits made for global audiences. We are certain that their success will only grow in the coming years and wish Martin Moszkowicz and his team all the best for the future."
