Who We Are

The CINEMA LIBRE STUDIO team knows that movies can make a difference in the world. They have distributed over 250 films and produced a few, which gave them the opportunity to work with masters of cinema such as Michelangelo Antonioni, Jean-Jacques Beineix, Oliver Stone as well as many unknown directors who were no less interesting.  CINEMA LIBRE STUDIO was created to give a voice to the voiceless, the minorities of all kinds and promote human rights and free speech.
