The Values and People at FILMKULTUR

That's
Filmkultur

Honesty, openness and respect are among our personal values. Values that we also firmly associate with documentary film. Here at FILMKULTUR we bring together everything that is important to us. To enrich society and shape the future.

Background

STORY | MISSION | VISION

Fascination, enthusiasm, astonishment. Personally, no other genre triggers stronger emotions in us than documentary films. It’s about real stories that touch us so much for that very reason. It does not matter whether we are allowed to look into a world that is unknown to us, or to discover a new perspective of our own world. As viewers and filmmakers, our passion has been documentary formats right from the start.

FILMKULTUR wants to offer a platform for particularly socially relevant topics. We want to promote diversity and respectful interaction. Create mutual understanding, initiate critical discussions and strengthen a sense of responsibility. Documentary film can do all of this. We are convinced.

The more important it is to bring stories from all over the world to the audience. Told by people from all over the world.

Our Values

That's what FILMKULTUR stands for - from personal conviction

Courage

Trust, respect, openness – all of our values require courage. Courage is the prerequisite for acting according to these values.

Respect

The basis for justice and fairness is a respectful way of dealing with each other. This includes humans, animals and nature alike.

Honesty

We understand sincerity as the foundation for trust. It is our base where we face the world.

Diversity

Diversity is what defines us. Our society as a whole and each individual for himself. We want to promote this understanding.

Empathy

The ability to empathize with other individuals and situations expands our horizons and enriches our lives.

Openness

Only with sincere interest, curiosity and an open eye we can really recognize and accept opportunities.

Responsibility

For fellow humans, for animals, for the environment, for decisions for words – we take responsibility. We act consciously.

Farsightedness

We consider the effects of our actions with a view to the future. We want to shape our life in the moment in a sustainable way.

Reliability

We see reliability as a prerequisite for long-term relationships. As a reliable partner, we make careful decisions. 

The Founders

We make FILMKULTUR

Documentary film is multifaceted. And it can be. However, the many different interpretations of the genre and the lack of transparency are increasingly weakening the confidence of the audience. On the other hand, the basic trust in documentary formats is underestimated. I wish that we counteract this trend together. For the love of documentaries. I want to contribute to this with FILMKULTUR.

Michaela Smykalla

FOUNDER | AUTHOR | MARKETING MANAGER

Regardless of whether a documentary draws attention to grievances, discusses opinions or shows utopias, it leaves the viewer with impulses that can influence their future actions. I see our films as a contribution to a responsible and equal global society, that may be a little bit better tomorrow than we know it today.
