acheronlogo2

Acheron Films’ vocation is that of creating daring and out-of-the-box products, so every work is got a unique personality of its own, different to anything the audience may have seen before.

In that sense, Acheron Films only develops projects enjoying the following qualities:

  • Exceptionality

    We are solely in search of projects that are different, which have unique and singular traits.

  • Risk

    We are always in the search for daring proposals which do not fit into the usual pattern, but which break new ground and seek new narrative paths.

  • Commitment

    we also try to look for products with a social aim and commitment, be it in terms of their own development or in their propositions (be they ideological, ethical…)

SERVICES

Acheron Films provides production and support services for audiovisual projects. Its team has more than 20 years of experience and it has received many prizes.
