About Alchemic Film
Alchemic Film is a Dutch film company, founded in 2017 by Turkish-Dutch Ibrahim (Ibo) Karatay and American-Dutch Paul Oscar Kanter. We admire artistically independent films in the tradition of auteur cinema. Consequently, we cherish the rich past of international cinema and try to understand the discourses of contemporary cinema both in its aesthetics and political economics. We believe that this ongoing endeavour is part of our effort to understand the challenges of our time and its impact on us as artists, as well as on our cinema. This attitude and conversation shape the focus of our company. Alchemic Film’s first productions have been selected for international festivals, including Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Cannes Cinéfondation, Sarajevo Film Festival and International Film Fesitval Rotterdam. We produce short, mid-length and feature-length fiction and documentaries. We are young and motivated producers and writer/directors with tremendous interest and passion for nature, life, humankind, literature and art.
