Tondowski Films

Where passion meets crafting stories.

Tondowski Films, established in 2011, is an independent production house based in Germany and a global producer of documentaries, films and TV series. At Tondowski Films, we are driven by a passion for storytelling that thrives on the unique, the bold, and the honest, underscored by a filmmaking process that is both fair and profoundly human. We craft empowering and impactful narratives, often through a distinctively strong female perspective.

Our commitment to crafting quality content has not only garnered us numerous international awards but has also established us as one of Germany’s leading documentary production companies.

At Tondowski Films we spearhead a culture of strategic collaboration, fostering an environment of bringing together diverse talents to produce stories that transcend borders. This meticulous approach ensures that each project is marked by authenticity and excellence. As a boutique independent production house, we create moving content out of love and an endless curiosity, continually striving to deliver exceptional work that resonates globally.

In 2023, we deepened our roots by relocating our main office to the serene countryside near Berlin, integrating our love for film with the tranquillity of nature. This space not only serves as a creative hub but also hosts seminars and screenings, embodying our dedication to community and cultural exchange.
