Potemkino is a Belgium based production company with a solid international reputation for its expertise in combining high quality fiction with inventive formats and international financing. From its collaboration with legendary filmmakers such as Peter Greenaway (Eisenstein in Guanajuato), Terence Davies (A Quiet Passion, starring Cynthia Nixon) and Bille August (55 Steps, starring Helena Bonham Carter & Hilary Swank), to producing the Scandic-Crime series Cold Courage (for Nent & Lionsgate), the prestigious sci-fi movie Iron Sky: The Coming Race, the renowned horror feature Cub and Emmy-nominated pan-European participative TV Series The Spiral, Potemkino has become one of Europe’s cutting edge production companies with an output of highly diversified projects where high quality and ambition is the common denominator. This international profile is combined with a strong focus on innovation and keeping up with new trends. To give an example, we’re currently working on two VR projects and one tablet game.
Peter De Maegd (founder & producer Potemkino) built a solid track record as producer and entrepreneur with a strong focus on international and innovative projects. He has worked with top talent from Peter Greenaway and Bille August to Helena Bonham Carter, Udo Kier and Toni Servillo while also creating opportunities to new talents and producing first features of among others Jonas Govaerts (Cub) and Jonas Baeckeland (Cool Abdoul) in various formats: feature films, TV series, animation, VR and gaming.
