2010 two SamFilm Productions were released in cinemas, the first German Musical for Teenagers “Rock It!” and rom-com “Single by contract”directed by Oscar nominee Marc Rothemund. Another 2010 release was award-winning SamFilm-coproduction “The last Station”, which was nominated for two academy awards. Following co-production “Promising theMoon” (die film, 2011) won the Bavarian Film Award for producer Uli Aselmann.
2011 SamFilm adapted one of the world´s best-selling kids book series for the big screen, Enid Blyton´s “The Famous Five”, released in cinemas January 2012. Three sequels were following with a total of 5 Million admissions.
Concurrently Karlström and Ulmke-Smeaton produced WINDSTORM (OT: OSTWIND, 2013), award winning horse adventure directed by Katja von Garnier, which was again followed up by sequels, WINDSTROM 2 (2015) and WINDSTORM 3 (2017).
2016 SamFilm rebooted THE WILD SUCCER BUNCH (dir. by Joachim Masannek) with a new cast and completed the comedy CRAZY ABOUT FIXI which is written and directed by Mike Marzuk.
In 2005, the two producers founded Alias Entertainment, in order to market merchandising rights to in-house brands in whole or in part, beginning with the soundtrack and audio plays for films in the “The Wild Soccer Bunch” franchise. On the fourth installment, “The Wild Soccer Bunch 4”, Alias Entertainment retained DVD rights for the first time. Finally, with “The Wild Soccer Bunch 5”, all ancillaries were marketed in-house to a slate of renowned licensees. Since 2015 Alias Entertainment publishes the novels to in-house feature films and has established a best-selling series with WINDSTORM.
Even if the focus has been on hit family entertainment in recent years, SamFilm is still open for all film genres. Most important is that they are projects Ewa Karlström and Andreas Ulmke-Smeaton believe in!
