Based in Paris and Ber­lin, Copro­duc­tion Office is an inter­na­tio­nal dis­tri­bu­tor and pro­du­cer of bold, award-win­ning films. Copro­duc­tion Office’s CEO and foun­der Phil­ip­pe Bober has work­ed with pro­mi­nent ground-brea­king direc­tors* from ear­ly on in their care­ers and has pro­du­ced for­ty films to date. Most of the­se films were sel­ec­ted for the main com­pe­ti­ti­ons in Can­nes, Venice and Ber­lin, whe­re they have recei­ved many major pri­zes, most nota­b­ly the Venice Gol­den Lion in 2014 for Roy Andersson’s A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE, and the Pal­me d’Or in 2017 and 2022 for THE SQUARE and TRIANGLE OF SADNESS by Ruben Öst­lund.

Copro­duc­tion Office’s inter­na­tio­nal sales divi­si­on dis­tri­bu­tes a cata­lo­gue com­po­sed of films pro­du­ced by Phil­ip­pe Bober as well as acqui­red titles and res­to­red clas­sics, inclu­ding Rober­to Rossellini’s key films. The cata­lo­gue is uni­que for its artis­tic strength, with films that have an indi­vi­du­al and distinc­ti­ve cine­ma­tic lan­guage, and often dar­ing con­tent.

The num­ber of staff has tri­pled in the past four years and Copro­duc­tion Office con­ti­nues to grow as it diver­si­fies its acti­vi­ties (which include a cine­ma and gas­tro­no­my pro­ject in Ber­lin, and incre­asing its res­to­ra­ti­on of heri­ta­ge works). At the fore­front of art­house cine­ma in Euro­pe, Copro­duc­tion Office is an inter­na­tio­nal, dyna­mic, and moti­va­tio­nal work­place which offers its employees sup­port, respon­si­bi­li­ty, and care­er pro­gres­si­on. At Copro­duc­tion Office you will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work clo­se­ly with films by some of Europe’s most exci­ting and accom­plished direc­tors.
