Johannes Rexin founded Rexinfilm in 2016 with a fresh slate of projects, the company focussing on high-quality feature films and TV series of German and European origin.
Cooperation with select partners distinguished by their love for cinema and filmmaking shape the company’s philosophy. Capitalizing on long-standing experience, market presence and contacts, we intend to create a first-class portfolio and to partner with great directors and producers both in Europe and throughout the world.
With a background in production, Line Production and Production Management, experience also includes Postproduction Management and Production Services. Among the many films Johannes’ credits include, he also produced „Qissa – the ghost is a lonely traveller“, filmed on the remote reaches of the Indo-Pakistani border, under the European Convention with Eurimages participation.
Projects in development include: „Ostende“, “Space Cadets“, „Pnin”, and an untitled Berlin feature film project.
Johannes studied politics, theatre and journalism and is a graduate of the highly respected MEGA program of the Media Business School in Spain where he studied management of media companies and received a Master in Audiovisual management.
