Netflix and Constantin Film have entered into a long-term partnership to expand their successful collaboration. They have agreed to an exclusive partnership for the pay distribution of Constantin Film’s theatrical productions in the German-speaking region. This includes national and international original and co-produced films, as well as films acquired for cinema or straight-to-video (STV) release. Through this long-term partnership, German and international theatrical productions will be available to Netflix subscribers in the SVOD (Subscription Video on Demand) 10-12 months after their theatrical release. In return, Netflix will contribute significantly to the financing of these productions. Additionally, the new agreement grants Netflix licensed access to Constantin Film’s existing film and series catalog.
The agreement covers future productions involving outstanding talent in front of and behind the camera, such as Bora Dagtekin, Tim Fehlbaum, Jella Haase, Peter Saarsgard, Ben Chaplin, John Magaro, Leonie Benesch, Mads Mikkelsen, Vanessa Hudgens, and many others.
This unique collaboration with Netflix in Germany provides additional avenues to jointly strengthen the commitment to German film and its success with the audience. This includes exclusive licensing of local blockbusters like „Chantal im Märchenland“ (AT). These financing contributions complement the existing commissioned and licensed productions in the series and film sector where Netflix and Constantin Film have already worked together.
„Constantin Film is a fantastic and important partner for Netflix, and we are excited to take our collaboration to the next level,“ said Katja Hofem, Vice President Content at Netflix GAS. „Diversity and quality are important to our subscribers when it comes to our series and films. Whatever their taste, mood, or who they are watching with, our goal is to ensure that everyone on Netflix finds content that inspires them. The exceptional local productions with Constantin Film make a significant contribution to this. At the same time, the co-financing model for German films further solidifies our presence in the local film industry.“
Martin Moszkowicz, CEO of Constantin Film, commented, „I am thrilled to announce this partnership with Netflix. This output deal for our theatrical productions will allow Constantin Film to continue creating exceptional productions and underscores our commitment to firstrate films. We believe that through this alliance, both we and our artists will be able to continue delivering successful, innovative, and captivating stories to our audiences.“
