Savage Film is a European film production company founded in 2007 by Bart Van Langendonck, operating in an association with Eyeworks Film & TV Drama (Warner Bros. group) since 2014.
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 many awards. Jeroen Perceval’s first feature Dealer was shot in 2021, and is scheduled for release late 2022.
