Der Kölner Film- und Serienproduzent treibt seine Internationalisierung voran – Carolin Springborn übernimmt die Leitung der ersten Auslandsdependance


Cologne, 10.11.2021. MMC Movies Cologne, a Germany-based film and series producer, is expanding into the USA and opening its first foreign office in Los Angeles. The new location is centrally located in the "Hollywood Media District", just a few minutes’ walk from the offices of Netflix and Viacom CBS as well as Paramount, Sunset & Red Studios. "We are very excited about the opening of the L.A. office, as it underscores our strategic direction moving forward. We will give MMC Movies a broader orientation and plan to realize more international productions in the future. Not least thanks to the Film Foundation NRW, we have an attractive production location here in Cologne, Germany with the highest international standards and a wide range of funding opportunities," says Jens Wolf, CEO of the MMC Group.

Carolin Springborn will take over as “Head of Acquisition US” the L.A. location and will report directly from the U.S. West Coast to Bastie Griese, Managing Director of MMC Movies. The 24-year-old is an MMC homegrown and has already been working for the Cologne-based producer for almost 5 years, most recently as a Junior Producer

"I am very excited about this unique opportunity to represent MMC in Los Angeles. For me, it's now about building as broad a network as possible with producers, distributors and studios. Our goal is to bring international productions to our studios in Cologne," said Caroline Springborn.

"The development of our new location is already bearing fruit. Already next year, a well-known American streaming provider will produce a high-end series in our Cologne MMC Studios. We are very much looking forward to that," adds Bastie Griese.
