Graniet Film was founded to produce director and writer Alex van Warmerdam films. It resulted in nine nationally and internationally appreciated films including Borgman (2013), which was in the official selection for the Cannes competition in 2013. The films were made possible by long-term partnerships with distributors, sales agents, broadcasters, funds and foreign co-producers. It led to a number of international collaborations like Donbass (Sergei Loznitsa, 2018) and Angel (Koen Mortier, 2018). No.10, the latest film Alex van Warmerdam will premiere in 2021.
Projects in development are The Invisible Man (Maaik Krijgsman), The Maalstroom (Teddy Cherim) and Pont-aux-Pins (Kees Prins and Roel Bloemen).
