Founded in 1994 freeX was the first-ever script development company in Germany. The idea: Screenwriters and script doctors work closely together to bolster the quality of screenplays before they were shopped around. This struck a chord – and freeX grew steadily into a talent agency, loosely affiliated with K5, now representing 25 writers, while still offering script services.

Independent of format, genre or budget, our aim is to entertain, engage and educate. We are looking for projects of exceptional quality and are nurturing productive relationships with writers and directors. Since scaling back our sales activities we have re-focused on producing: We co-financed and produced Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, starring Adam Driver, with Amazon Studios in 2015. Our first cinematic undertaking as lead producers was ANON by Andrew Niccol with Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried, released in 2018 in theaters and on Netflix.



We were first to believe in selling English language films – out of Germany. For 10 years we sold and co-/exec-produced Oscar contenders and internationally acclaimed films: Land of Mine by Martin Zandvliet was invited to more than 30 festivals and won a slew of 32 awards, crowned with an Oscar nomination as Best Foreign Language Film in 2017. Our first acquisition The Visitor by Tom McCarthy earned Richard Jenkins an Oscar nomination as Best Lead Actor in 2009. Currently we distribute our library and select new titles.
