MILAN FILM is an award-winning Swiss production company based in Basel (Switzerland) on the borders of Germany and France and connected by the Rhine and in Zurich, the film metropole of Switzerland.

MILAN FILM is an award-winning Swiss production company founded in 2016. We develop and produce feature fiction, documentaries and series. Our offices are based in Basel and Zurich.

We focus on current, socially relevant topics, realizing films that are primarily about people grappling with moral and existential issues, while remembering to include the humorous side when appropriate. Our aim is to tell stories that reach a broad audience – to make people laugh and cry, as well as to introduce topics which are not often discussed openly.
