2014 and 2015 were years of concretization, favoring our credibility in fiction and our positioning on the national and international market since we were able to lead the production of three feature-length fiction films: Keeper by Guillaume Senez (selected in more than 70 festivals and which received around 20 awards), Welcome Home by Philippe de Pierpont (selected at the FIFF Namur in international competition – special mention coup de coeur by the Jury) and Insoumise by Jawad Rhalib (Jury Prize at the Marrakech Film Festival, and selected in 25 festivals around the world). These films have been sold in many territories.

In November 2017, we shot Guillaume Senez’s second feature film Our struggles in co-production with Films Pelléas (France), starring Romain Duris. This film was selected by the Critics’ Week at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and nominated for the 2019 Césars in the Best Foreign Film and Best Actor categories. In Belgium it won 5 Magritte awards in February 2019. In addition to selections and awards at numerous festivals, the film has been sold in some 20 territories.

On the animation side, in 2014, we participated in the production of Tomm Moore’s second animated feature Song of the sea, nominated for Oscars and Césars and awarded the prize for best European animated film in 2015. We co-produced Look for the woman, a 30 x 3 min animated series directed by Julie Gavras and the Brigade du titre, produced by Les Films du Bilboquet and Zadig. We also remain open to new co-production animation projects.


Benefiting from a strong and privileged relationship with authors and creators, and after producing a dozen of feature films, Iota Production is now investing in the field of TV series by encouraging talents to combine their personal worlds with the creative vitality that makes Belgium a particularly favourable environment. Currently, we are developing #Innocents by Fred Muzzi, David Bourgie and Martin Brossollet, Weirdos by Charlotte Evrard and Julie d’Hennezel as well as  Mercure Rouge by Valérie Lieko.

Co-production is also part of the activity, enabling us to forge links with other producers, to regulate our own production rhythm and to widen the scope of possibilities. The feature film Oleg by Juris Kursietis, produced by Tasse Film in Latvia, was selected by the La quinzaine des réalisateurs at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and won the Grand Prize in national competition at the Brussels International Film Festival  2019 (BRIFF). We are also finishing the post-production of Sonia Liza Kenterman’s feature Tailor, produced by Argonauts in Greece, Iota Production, Elemag Pictures & Made in Germany. In 2023 We co-produced the Moroccan feature film Backstage by Afef Ben Mahmoud and Khalil Benkirane selected in Venise FIlm Festival (section : Giornate Degli Autori) which won Cinema & Art award.
