Ceo and Managing director
Bim Production was founded in October 2019 by Italian film distribution company Bim (a Wild Bunch Group owned division) and Riccardo Russo (former Head of Tv at Leone Film Group and Head of International Co-productions at Lux Vide).
The company mission is to produce high-end content in Drama Series, Documentary and Film for the Italian and international market.
The owning group Wild Bunch AG, listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, is one of the major independent European players when it comes to producing and distributing Films, Documentaries and Drama Series, with a catalogue of over 2.500 titles. Thanks to its international presence, the pan-European holding Group has contributed to the success of numerous feature films such as The Artist (5 Academy Awards©, including Best Film), Blue is the Warmest Colour, Dheepan, Fahrenheit 9/11 (all of which won the Palm d’Or© at the Cannes Film Festival ) and Pan’s Labyrinth (3 Academy Awards©).
Bim Production joins the other European production company divisions of Wild Bunch AG: Senator Produktion (Germany), Vertigo (Spain) and Wild Bunch (France).
