Bavaria Film


CEO / Chairman

Before joining Bavaria Film, Franckenstein served as CEO of Munich-based TV entertainment group MME Moviement, a company that grew out of Moviement, which he co-founded in 1999. As CEO of Bavaria, he has overseen the restructuring of the company’s three main divisions and divestiture of non-core assets. He has also announced plans to increase investment in the group in the coming years. On the production side, Franckenstein has been keen to tap into Bavaria’s rich film and television heritage for such projects as “Das Boot,” a sequel to its six-time Oscar-nominated Wolfgang Petersen WWII classic. He’s also leading the call for smarter and more future-oriented funding for film, TV and the game industry in order to make Germany more globally competitive.
