Amok Films stands for independent, innovative and conscious documentary cinema. The production studio, sustained by a new generation of filmmakers, technicians and artists, was founded in 2018 by Antoine Goldet and Dea Gjinovci, two emerging documentary filmmakers eager to produce their own films.
Amok is involved in all stages of the production of its independent films, from development to impact campaigns, finding broadcasters and raising grants. The company also specializes in fundraising and partnerships with American institutions.
Amok also works in co-production with more established production houses. The creative documentaries produced and co-produced by Amok Films have received support from the Sundance Documentary Fund, the CNC, France Télévisions, the Île-de-France region, Just Films/Ford Foundation, Radio Télévision Suisse, Field of Vision and Fondation de France, among others.
