About us

Founded by Helmut Grasser in 1989, Allegro Film is now one of the leading film production companies in Austria. Helmut Grasser has shared the role of Managing Director with Katharina Bogensberger since 2009.
In keeping with its mission “exceptional quality for a wide audience”, Allegro Film has since its inception produced over 60 feature films and documentaries for both the big and small screen.

Allegro Film’s line-up includes the two most successful documentaries ever produced in Austria: WE FEED THE WORLD (over 200,000 admissions in Austria) and LET’S MAKE MONEY (winner of the German Documentary Award 2009). Our latest documentary MORE THAN HONEY was met with great acclaim worldwide and received numerous awards, making it Switzerland’s most successful documentary of all times (over 230,000 admissions).

With DEAD IN 3 DAYS and DEAD IN 3 DAYS – THE SEQUEL, directed by Andreas Prochaska, Allegro Film has also produced two genre movies that were successful in attracting young audiences at the national and international box offices. We continue this tradition with our Alpine Western THE DARK VALLEY (featuring Sam Riley and Tobias Moretti), which has won 8 awards at the German Film Awards LOLA 2014.

Allegro Film productions have also won numerous awards, including the Silver Lion for Best Director at the Venice Film Festival with Ulrich Seidl’s DOG DAYS, and the Bronze Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival with Florian Flicker’s HOLD UP.

The TV drama HALF A LIFE by Nikolaus Leytner won the German Television Award in 2009 in several categories, going on to win the Grimme Television Award for Best Director and three acting awards for Josef Hader, Mathias Habich and Franziska Walser.

"Film must make people reflect; it ought to touch them, make them laugh and entertain them. It is a privilege to produce films for the cinema and TV – it is a creative process that can only be realized as a team, never losing sight of one’s responsibility to the audience.” Helmut Grasser, Producer
