Samarcanda Film

About Us

Samarcanda Film was established in 2013. It is the innovative brain-child of friends who have pooled their experience and expertise in media entertainment to discover new talent in the market.

The company operates in the market for the worldwide distribution of audio-visual products (Format and Ready Made) and has recently developed partnerships in North America, Central and South America, Europe and Asia. Samarcanda is specifically targeting: creative freedom, enthusiasm and expertise in contents development.

Samarcanda’s library is host to a broad range of products (TV series, formats, documentaries, Features, etc.) that aim to enhance the Made in Italy Label, together with scripts dealing with culture and social change in our country. The company has launched an intensive scouting activity in the audio-visual markets in order to identify products and formats aimed at cross targets (family,  teen,  youth,  adults,  fast consumers,  productive,  dynamic,  etc.) and is pursuing a broad client base.

Beyond distribution, Samarcanda Film aims to establish itself as a leading company in documentaries, factuals and drama productions. We focus on productions, co-productions and creative cooperation with authors and partners who enjoy a challenge. Our goal is to invest our own talents and resources in projects whose contents have specific editorial features: originality, identity and vision.

We are looking for original scripts that embody innovation, original interpretation and fast-moving storylines designed to capture the attention of both our audiences and our business partners. We recognise that choosing the right story is of paramount importance and that is why we are looking for scripts which are rich, consistent and well-balanced.

We are effective merchants in story telling - modern day troubadours – and we want to take our place in the front line of narrative story telling.
