Since the creation of Ikki Films in 2011 we have been striving to produce a cinema of experience and experimentation. Pushing back the boundaries of narration, in search of a beauty that’s sharp rather than smooth, inviting the viewer towards doubt, uncertainty, and mystery.
We therefore support young animation and live action filmmakers, from France and abroad, in all types of formats, with the conviction that each of their works will find and have an impact on its audience. As a production company – with 22 films in 12 years – we are lucky enough to see that our instincts have been correct: our films have reached all continents, participating in more than 700 festivals, and receiving more than 200 awards. Awards and nominations include an Oscar nomination (“Negative Space”), a European Film Award and a César award (“Granny’s Sexual Life”).
Our team consists of Nidia Santiago and Edwina Liard, two producers working in tandem on all projects. In addition, Alejandra López works with us on live-action documentaries, while Juliette Marquet and Olivier Catherin contribute as independent producers.
In 2020 we received the Procirep Short Film Producer Award.
