Amour Fou Luxembourg
Founded in Luxemburg in 1995 and in Vienna in 2001, AMOUR FOU Luxembourg and
AMOUR FOU Vienna, realize artistically exceptional feature, documentary and short films for the international market with international and, most frequently, European partners.Throughout the process AMOUR FOU stands for vision and pushing the envelope, whether in regard to aesthetics, production or distribution strategies. The focus is on European independent auteur cinema and the distinctive “handwriting” of the directors who work with AMOUR FOU.
A further emphasis can be found in the development and realization of films and projects that are located at the interface of science, film and art, and in the production of documentaries concerning issues in the visual arts.
AMOUR FOU has built up experienced production departments in Luxembourg and Vienna.The script and project development as well as the financing and marketing of the films, are strategically and jointly planned and implemented.
The aim is to develop and produce qualitatively exceptional films which have the potential for international distribution. In dealing with script development, AMOUR FOU works with international authors, script editors and directors. The central and core concern of the work is the development of projects — from a basic idea to a concrete concept and screenplay through to completion.
AMOUR FOU regards itself as a bridge between the German-speaking and the French-speaking film worlds and between Western and Central-/Eastern Europe. The most important coproduction partners up to the present - apart from Luxembourg and Austria - have been France, Germany, the UK, Switzerland and Hungary.
