Passanten Filmproduktion was launched in 2009 by directors Peter Baranowski and Michael Krummenacher with the goal to gain more creative freedom in the production of their own films. Since then several films have come to life, such as the feature films SYBILLE (Berlinale Perspektive Deutsches Kino 2015) and HINTER DIESEN BERGEN (International Film Festival Rotterdam 2010) as well as internationally successful short films, among them RAUSCHGIFT (Pardino d‘Oro, Locarno 2011) and WENN ALLE DA SIND (nomination German Short Film Award 2012).
