Klappboxfilme has been established in 2006 by filmmakers Jessica Krummacher and Timo Mueller. The main focus is to develop our own documentaries and feature arthouse films and establish them on a national and international level.

In 2008 we released our first feature-film production Morscholz, written and directed by Timo Mueller, produced by Jessica Krummacher. The film wins the »Förderpreis Deutscher Film – Kategorie Beste Regie« , the most acclaimed award for upcoming filmmakers in Germany. Several international film festivals followed.

Jessica Krummachers first feature film TOTEM celebrated 2011 his world premiere at the »68. Biennale di Venezia«. After it was also shown at u.a. Viennale, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Buenos Aires Festival Internacional de Cine Independente. TOTEM nominated for German Filmcritics’ Award (Best Newcomer) 2012.

The second feature film THE DEATH OF MY MOTHER by Jessica Krummacher was shot in September and October 2020 in the Ruhr Area and will premiere at the Berlinale 2022 at Encounters Competition.

Der Film DER ROTE BERG von Timo Müller feiert im Sommer 2022 Premiere auf dem Filmfest München.

Aktuell entwickeln wir neue fiktionale und dokumentarische Autorenstoffe fürs Kino. Eine künstlerische Weiterführung von DER ROTE BERG, das Projekt DER ROTE BERG KOMPLEX (AT) von Timo Müller befindet sich in der Postproduktion. Das neue, gemeinsame Projekt BÜNDE (AT) ist in der Stoffentwicklung, gefördert von der NRW Filmstiftung.

The cinematic work of us is regularly complemented by art projects and exhibitions realised in the field of video art, mixed media or installation. Those works have been funded by Art Foundation NRW and State Government of North Rhine-Westphalia.
