Ready to roll! The financing of THE SUPER ELFKINS (WT) is completed and our Elfkins‘ second journey can begin. This time, Elfie’s world is turned upside down when she discovers the existence of a technically advanced Elfkin gang that is second to none when it comes to fun and thrill-seeking.

Our sequel to THE ELFKINS – BAKING A DIFFERENCE is once again directed by Ute von Münchow-Pohl and written by Jan Strathmann. We are very excited to bring this new adventure to screens around the world together with our co-producers Dunja Bernatzky and Kris Staber from ARX anima and Sebastian Runschke from SERU Animation.

Our partners for this project are Tobis Film, SOLA Media and ZDF. The financial support comes from Filmstiftung NRW, MFG, MOIN, Nordmedia, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, DFFF and FFA in Germany and FFW, ÖFI, FISA and ORF in Austria. A big “thank you!“ to all the supporters and partners involved in helping this continuation come to life.

#WeStandWithUkraine
(27/5/2022)

A different take on tradition. As every year, Akkord Film recently held its annual Oscar betting game, where the staff members bet on who wins the Academy Awards. This time however, for every Euro invested, the company donated ten Euros to the initiative „Support Filmmakers Ukraine“, rounding it up to a four-digit amount.

The initiative intends to help Ukrainian filmmakers who risk their lives under extreme conditions filming independent footage of the war. Involved are the Deutsche Filmakademie, Produzentenallianz, Crew United and many more. The donations are invested in protective wear and film equipment which are urgently needed for working in the warzone.
