S.U.M.O. Film is an independent film production company in Berlin. Our focus is on the development and production of high quality and innovative documentaries for the cinema screen.
CINEMA ON DEMAND
In order to bring documentaries to the cinema, new paths have to be explored – the competition is too great and relevant and innovative documentaries are disappearing from cinemas almost unseen too quickly. For THE CHILDREN OF UTOPIA, S.U.M.O. developed a special, very successful strategy: the film ran in 170 cinemas in Germany in just one evening, reached over 20,000 moviegoers and is one of the most successful German documentaries in 2019.
Since presentations in front of an audience are still difficult in the current situation, there is a special license model for online festivals, workshops, etc. for all S.U.M.O. films.
The cult film BERLIN BABYLON was shown daily in the cinema even after 20 years. A special campaign is currently being developed with which BERLIN BABYLON will come back to the screen after the cinema closings.
