What happens when people from different cultures meet?

 

Sfinx Film/TV collaborates with Danish Public service DR, TV2, The Danish Film Institute and international Broadcasters. In addition to documentaries, we produce a series of educational films. Our productions are used for debates on social issues.

ABOUT US

Since 1987

Welcome to Sfinx Film/TV - an independent production company. The topics and issues we make films about, arise from our interest in people and the way people get along. We aim to focus on the thoughts, experiences and emotions of individual human beings. Our productions are often about unusual individuals having to make unusual choices. We seek to reach the heart of the topic or event we depict in our films via personal accounts.

 

Annette Mari Olsen and

Katia Forbert Petersen

are the driving forces behind Sfinx Film/TV,

 

working together with a wide range of

qualified filmmakers on each individual production.
