schweizen is a dynamic film company founded in 2010 and based in Bogotá (South America).
We aim to boost fiction and documentary features with a strong and distinct voice behind; seeking to explore contemporary, politically urgent, and culturally challenging narratives to shape into unique cinematographic works.

Along with new titles for cinema, we are passionately developing new television and on-line projects for a variety of clients.

Convinced that good auteur and risk-taking original films must find their audiences, every season we attend the major world markets and handpick a few international award-winning films for Colombian Distribution.
