This is our Story

Animæ is an independent feature and short film production company. It is our ambition to deliver a positive contribution to society through the art of film. From our film studio in The Hague (The Netherlands), we create films from our own crafted stories that we love to share with the whole world.

Because film is more than special effects and big name casts. Film is not about pretty pictures or marketing mumbo jumbo. Film is about the story. A story that is urgent and honest. We believe that film is like a mirror that we sometimes proudly want to hold up to ourselves, sometimes want to hide away, but it always reflects who we are no matter what.

Where can you find our films? Ideally in as many places as possible! Our films appear at film festivals worldwide. A trend in recent years is that films are increasingly distributed via Video on Demand platforms (VODs). We therefore work together with these parties to distribute our films via VODs. The websites of our films show where they can be seen.

Shout out to some great people!

We've worked with many great people over the years. But especially, we would like to thank Yorick Sedee for his excellent sound design work, Luka Geelen for being our reliable DOP and Gregory A. Kiss for being the best best boy (amongst many other things)! Thank you all!

Social Enterprise

Art-house is what we do best. Our films go beyond the cinema of attractions. We are eager to spread our story to a broad audience. And we think that film is a great and exciting medium to do so. We might not use the latest techniques, or cast all the famous actors. But our productions share the same spirit: to make fantastic films!

Showcase your talents

We love to work with great, aspiring talents from all over the world. Our production team is built on a melange of young professionals and accredited veterans. We want to make films that are both entertaining and inspirational. Film is our passion, and we hope you will love our films as much as we love working on them.
