About us

Since 2004, Box Productions has been producing and co-producing feature films, documentaries and shorts that have found their way onto the Swiss and international markets.

Box Productions first produced Jean-Stéphane Bron’s Mon frère se marie (Piazza Grande, Locarno 2006) and Ursula Meier’s Home (Semaine de la Critique, Cannes 2008). Attentive to emerging cinema, we have since produced numerous short films and features by young Swiss filmmakers (Delphine Lehericey, Antoine Russbach, Robin Erard, Marie-Elsa Sgualdo, Julien Rouyet, Adrienne Bovet, Basil da Cunha, Kaspar Schiltknecht, Christophe M. Saber and Frédéric Recrosio). At the same time, we are also involved in several international co-productions, including Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights (2015), Mehran Tamadon’s Iranian (2014) and Joachim Lafosse’s À perdre la raison (2014).

Of the twelve feature films produced, ten had their world premiere at an A Festival (Cannes, Locarno, Berlinale, Toronto). In addition, at the Swiss Film Awards, Box Productions received 22 nominations and 11 awards.

Delphine Lehericey’s Beyond the Horizon (co-production with Entre Chien et Loup, Belgium) and Antoine Russbach’s Those Who Work (co-production with Novak Prod, Belgium) are among our latest productions. Beyond the horizon, an adaptation of Roland Buti’s Swiss novel, with Laeticia Casta and Clémence Poésy, had its world premiere in San Sebastian in 2019. Ceux qui travaillent was presented in 2018 at the Locarno Festival and received the Audience Award at the Festival Premiers Plans d’Angers, and then became an international success, with great public and critical success when released in French theatres. Both films won the Swiss Film Awards in the category Best Film and Best Screenplay.

Box Productions is currently developing numerous projects for feature films, shorts and dramatic series, and is pursuing its vocation of supporting Swiss and international filmmakers driven by a strong and original approach to cinema.
