About the company
Savage Film is a Brussels based film production company founded in 2007 by Bart Van Langendonck, operating in an association with Eyeworks Film & TV Drama (Warner Bros. group) since 2014.
Savage Film produces fiction films and documentaries with subjects just as versatile as its directors’ backgrounds. Daring or controversial, Savage Film often balances on the boundaries of genres, be it fiction, documentary or art. Savage Film co-produces internationally with major production companies and its films are represented by major international sales agents.
The company established itself internationally with Michaël R. Roskam’s film Bullhead (Rundskop), a box office hit in Belgium as well as a César and Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012. The film sold to over twenty territories and was awarded at numerous festivals.
Robin Pront’s debut The Ardennes, another ‘Belgian noir’, became a box office and festival success as well, while the astonishing docu-fiction The Land of the Enlightened by first-time director Pieter-Jan De Pue conquered the world out of its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. In 2017 Michaël R. Roskam’s third film, Le Fidèle (aka Racer and the Jailbird), was launched at the Venice and Toronto film festivals. In 2019 acclaimed series director Tim Mielants’ first feature film Patrick had its world premiere in competition at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and received raving reviews and numerous awards.
Jeroen Perceval’s first feature Dealer premiered in November 2021 and won several awards, including 10 Ensors at the Ostend Film Festival. Veerle Baetens' When It Melts recently had its world premiere at Sundance as part of the World Cinema Dramatic Competition where lead actress Rosa Marchant took home the Special Jury Award for Best Performance. Dominique Deruddere's The Chapel opened Filmfestival Oostende and the Jecheon International Music & Film Festival.
