THE ART OF STORYTELLING
Groenlandia is a leading independent production company and one of Italy’s most active ones.
Born from the meeting of directors Matteo Rovere and Sydney Sibilia, its goal is to craft stories that revive and bring value to the great Italian audiovisual tradition, nationally and internationally.
Quality, creativity, innovation, talent appreciation and a commitment to making environmentally sustainable productions are at the heart of Groenlandia’s constant development. Successful works include the Masterclass and Ad Honorem – the two sequels of the I Can Quit Whenever I Want saga, Romulus & Remo: The First King, Husband and Wife, Marilyn has black eyes, The Champion, Rose Island, The Beast, and the TV series Romulus.
OBSERVATORY ON THE WORLD
Ascent Film was established in 2003 by Andrea Paris, with the aim of becoming an independent film production company giving voice to new talents in Italian and European cinema.
In nearly twenty years, Ascent Film has produced short successful films and documentaries, which were repeatedly featured in major international festivals such as Cannes, Venice and Rome.
With producer-director Matteo Rovere joining the company in 2008, and Ascent Film becoming part of the Groenlandia Group, the production of feature films started, still keeping research, experience and enthusiasm as guiding lights. The company has since started working with many talented people with great commercial and artistic potential, and succeeded in keeping high quality standards and audience expectations together.
Author’s needs and the will to tell stories capable of crossing boundaries were always kept in mind. Those stories brought Ascent Film to establish new partnerships with producers, authors and directors from all over Italy, Europe, and the entire world.
