“The beauty of a film starts when the acting stops.”
Documentary film is what we do. We stand for socio-political filmmaking in the field of documentaries, following in the tradition of the auteur film. We focus on producing documentary works – be it theatrical films, TV movies or other audiovisual formats – which take a distinct and personal approach to discovering new things and challenging traditional views. Seeing instead of illustrating. Aiming to open people’s eyes.
Navigator Film was established in 1992 in Vienna. Alongside our own productions and our work to convey outstanding documentary positions (since 1992 we have organized numerous seminars and retrospectives featuring major international figures in the field of documentaries), we also champion the interests of documentary filmmaking in Austria. In 2000 Navigator Film was instrumental in founding dok.at (the Austrian documentary film association). In 2004 Navigator Film and other partners founded the world sales company Autlook Filmsales which is based in Vienna. Navigator Film is a member of EDN (European Documentary Network) (European Documentary Network) and the aafp(Association of Austrian Film Producers).
