Henning Kamm has been appointed managing director of film production company Real Film Berlin. Kamm, a native of Hamburg, had previously served as managing director of and executive producer for Detailfilm, the company he founded in 2007 with Fabian Gasmia.
Michael Lehmann, chairman of executive management for the Studio Hamburg Production Group, said: “We look forward to setting forth with him to position Real Film creatively in the market, not only in the national TV business, but in the field of international co-production.”
“I want to use my experience on the ‘trading floor’ of international film and their expertise in the German market to tell stories that appeal on a worldwide scale,” Kamm said. “This new capacity is the logical step following an unforgettable, successful era of work together with my highly esteemed partner at Detailfilm.”
Detailfilm’s films played at leading festivals including the Berlinale, Sundance, Karlovy Vary and Locarno, and at such museums as MoMA in New York. They have been honored with numerous jury and audience prizes, including the Lola, Karlovy Vary’s Crystal Globe, and the SXGlobal Award, and a nomination for a European Film Award. Recent credits include Olivier Assayas’ “Personal Shopper,” starring Kristen Stewart, and Mia Hansen-Love’s “Things to Come,” starring Isabelle Huppert.
In 2014, Kamm was Germany’s nomination for “Producer on the Move,” a program run by European Film Promotion. He is a member of the European Film Academy and the European Producers Club, and an EAVE and Inside Pictures alumni. In January 2015, he founded Zentropa Hamburg together with Danish powerhouse Zentropa.
Among other projects, Henning is presently working on Dustin Loose’s “Bosporus Brothers,” Erik Schmitt’s “The Tiny Lady,” Carlo Zoratti’s “La Vita Nuova,” and Mara Eibl Eibesfeldt “Days of Kindness.”
