Ilanga Films is run by director Kirsi Liimatainen. The initial aim of the company is to realize our own documentary projects. These will be high-quality programms - both series and one-offs - for the European TV and Cinema market.
At a later stage Ilanga Films will begin take on documentaries from other writers and directors, as well as fiction based projects. We will also expand our teaching activities and collaborate with social groups and communities on film and media workshops.
Ilanga means "the sun" in Xhosa, which is one of the official languages of South Africa. The most well known Xhosa is Nelson Mandela.
The company is based in Berlin and Helsinki.
