Iota Production was founded in 2000 by Isabelle Truc. It has since produced 40 documentary films. Iota remains faithful to this activity, as shown by the documentary feature Ma’ohi nui, in the heart of the ocean my country lies, by Annick Ghijzelings, selected for the Berlinale 2018 (NATIV.e section), but has also ventured into the world of fiction.
Since 2006, Iota has produced 10 short films by young talents and an 11th is in development. Short films have proved to be an excellent laboratory and we are now moving on to produce features with some of these young directors as, for example, with Guillauame Senez and Elisabet Llado.
2014 and 2015 were years of consolidation, favoring our credibility and our positioning on the national and international market. We managed to simultaneously produce three fiction features: Keeper by Guillaume Senez (selected in over 70 festivals, awarded 20 prizes), Welcome Home by Philippe de Pierpont (selected at the FIFF in Namur in international competition – special mention, Jury favorite) and Rebellious girl by Jawad Rhalib (selected in international competition at the Film Festival of Marrakech, Jury Award, and in 25 festivals all over the world).
In November 2017, we shot Guillaume Senez’ second feature, Our struggles in co-production with Films Pelléas (France). Romain Duris played the main role.
This film was selected by the Critic’s Week at the Cannes Film Festival 2018.
Several feature projects are in development : The lords by Véronique Cratzborn is in production (shooting in autumn 2018). Several feature projects are in development as It runs in the family! by Elodie Lélu and Bonjour Madame by Elisabet Llado.
On the animation side, in 2014, we participated in the production of the second animation feature by Tomm Moor, Song of the sea, which was nominated for the Oscars and Césars and awarded best European animation film in 2015. We remain open to new co-productions on animation projects.
Given our strong and privileged relationship with the authors and creators, Iota Production is now moving into the field of TV series by urging these talented youngsters to merge their personal worlds with the creative vitality that makes Belgium such a fertile terrain.
Co-production is an integral part of our activities, enabling us to weave ties with other producers, to regulate our own rhythm of productions and broaden our possibilities. Our first co-productions were with close partners. Today, drawing on this experience, we are broadening our circle of partners. We are working on the post-production of OLEG by Juris Kurisetis, produced by Tasse Film in Letonia. We managed part of the shooting in Belgium, then in autumn, we will participate on the production of the Greek feature Tailor by Sonia Liza Kenterman.
