Freihändler Film Production develops and produces short and feature-length documentary and animation films, as well as experimental video pieces for the art world, focusing socio-political and cultural topics.

Freihändler was founded by Stella Händler and Claudia Frei in 2000 as an independent production company, based in Basel. When Claudia Frei chose to embark on a change in career, in 2011 Stella Händler took over as the company’s sole owner and managing director. In production she collaborates with Franziska Sonder, in promotion with Chantal Molleur.

For over 15 years Freihändler Film Production creates, in close collaboration with filmmakers, films and art pieces for both national and international markets.
