The film is produced by Florida Film and Omnipolis Media.
Florida Film was created in 2019 by two established German production houses: Florida Entertainment, the award-winning TV entertainment producer (“Late Night Berlin”, “Joko & Klaas gegen ProSieben”, “15 Minuten”, “Wer stiehlt mir die Show?”), and Bird & Bird Film, a fiction and documentary film company. Florida Film produces television series, feature films and documentaries.
In the past three years, the company has developed and produced three seasons of the TV comedy series “Check. Check”, three improvised TV film productions — “Für Immer Sommer 90”, “Kranitz – bei Trennung Geld zurück”, “Das Begräbnis” — and the feature film “Mittagsstunde”, based on the novel of the same name by Dörte Hansen.
In 2021, “Für Immer Sommer 90” won the renowned Grimme Prize as well as the German Television Award (“Deutscher Fernsehpreis”).
Florida Film is currently developing several fictional and non-fictional films and series for the German and for international markets.
Founded in 2016, Omnipolis Media has been operating since early summer 2017. The company is developing media projects to advance our understanding and awareness of the need for transformation to truly sustainable politics and economics, both socially and ecologically.
In addition to the film about ‘Wellbeing Economies’, the company produces the political entertainment Show ‘vollehalle‘, in collaboration with the vollehalle team. (See also the vollehalle website [German only].)
