As main producer Asta Film is engaged in all phases of the project, from the sparkling burst of idea brought to daylight, through developments, turns and U-turns, financing, planning of festivals, distribution and marketing.
It is important for us to see the projects Asta Film work upon as singulars and through researching and finding their unique identities drive the marketing approaches and opportunities. They each have their own potentials, which we seek to invoke, recognize and seize in corporation with our partners.
