ARRI World Sales was founded in 2000 as a department of the internationally established ARRI Group, which manufactures and distributes camera and lighting equipment as well as providing post-production services.
ARRI World Sales specializes in the international distribution of commercial feature films ( e.g. V8 by Joachim Masannek, DAS KLEINE GESPENST by Alain Gsponer, PETTSON AND FINDUS by Ali Samadi Ahadi) and award-winning independent films ( e.g. EXIT MARRAKECH by Caroline Link, DIE ANDERE HEIMAT by Edgar Reitz, THE WHOLE SHEBANG by Doris Dörrie). Alongside the portfolio of German productions, ARRI World Sales, thanks to its outstanding international network, also participates in international features ( e.g. THE DOMINO EFFECT by Paula van der Oest, INDIAN SUMMER by Brian Ward). In addition, ARRI World Sales offers an extensive library of feature films from various producers.
ARRI enjoys an international reputation for quality, excellent client service and being a reliable partner. You will find these attributes in our co-production and distribution fields as well.
Our aim is to team up with producers on film projects that are already in the financing phase, that is on script basis, to not only participate as an international distributor but also offer the possibility of co-producing (ARRI Production). We are the only company in the world to offer such a unique business model because, alongside our co-production and international distribution activities, we can also bring a broad range of services from inside the ARRI Group (camera, lighting, post-production, such as picture and sound, and VFX).
