a_BAHN is a distinctive film production company based in Luxembourg and France, with unique experience in social impact producing and outreach. The company is dedicated to supporting the creation of content that is both artistic and accurate and that engages an audience in response, bringing together the traditional worlds of film and television with new media.
Our projects are built around the passion of the author and seek to weave together documentary narrative and the investigation of ideas in visually compelling ways. Whether in the areas of music, fashion, or social issues, our goal is to infuse the approach to these subjects with a sense of the civic dimension. The slight change in the direction that cinema reaches and impacts our minds. It is an (in)visible turn to the audience engagement that can be taken by all films that challenge our moral conscience and behaviour.
This commitment is our DNA as we see media as a tool for change and social cohesion. We seek out strong editorial lines, not polemics, that are built on sound research. Key word: bold.
Thus a_BAHN becomes a strike force serving militant projects.
a_BAHN works with networks such as ARTE, SWR, and France Télévisions. We are proud to receive steady support from the FilmFund Luxembourg and the CNC in France, as well as international and regional funds such as Pictanovo, Europe Creative Media or Wallimage. Our projects are regularly selected for and awarded by international competitions and festivals.
