The cinema that we defend are films whose very existence are motivated by a strong point of view, and the desire to reach out and touch an audience.
Stenola Productions was created in 2009 in Brussels by Anton Iffland Stettner, after having graduated from INSAS in the Directing department and Eva Kuperman, an IHECS graduate in the Communication department. Their filmography was built upon the desire to accompany Belgian and international filmmakers on their journey creating works of fiction and documentary.
Regarding documentaries, Stenola has accompanied Belgian directors (Claudio Capanna, Tülin Ozdemir, Eric Pauwels, Benjamin Colaux,…) as well as international directors (Christian Rouaud, Madeleine Leroyer, Rémi Lainé, Jean-Robert Viallet…)
As for fictions, Stenola is currently producing the next films by Joachim Lafosse (The Restless), Jan Bucquoy (The Last Temptation of Belgians), Micha Wald (The Isle of the Demoiselle), Ivan Goldschmidt (Heat Without Borders) as well as Chloé Léonil’s first feature film (Sunshine).
