About Us

Hello and welcome to Thursday – Germany’s happiest film production company.

This is because we do what we love and what we are best at.
Telling these 1 in a million stories.
Making things bigger than life.
Adding little twists and turns with a natural tendency to exaggerate.
Guilty in that sense – we love the unexpected.

We are storytellers and creators of docu-fiction features and series and we work with the greatest partners in the industry.
We are based in Germany’s most beautiful capital in Berlin.
Why don’t you come over and we will give you some more details about projects we have in production and in development!?
We could also explain to you why we chose a weekday for our company’s name.
