Mer Film was founded by producer Maria Ekerhovd in 2011. Located in Bergen and in the far northern city of Tromsø, Mer Film’s ambition is to develop and produce Norwegian and international art-house films by directors with a personal artistic vision. We are proud to have attached some of Norway’s most exciting filmmaking talents, including Ole Giæver, Iram Haq, Gunnar Vikene and Bobbie Peers. We have also collaborated on a number of international co-productions, working with critically celebrated filmmakers such as Carlos Reygadas, Thomas Arslan, Wim Wenders and Amat Escalante. Our films have screened at some of the world´s top film festivals, including Toronto, Berlin, and Karlovy Vary, as well as countless others across the world.

In 2015, we expanded our mission and Mer Filmdistribusjon was born. As a new distributor of worldwide cinema in Norway, Mer Filmdistribusjon handles the Norwegian release of titles both theatrically and on VOD. Mer Filmdistribusjon looks to champion films from emerging talents who are telling stories in a distinct and compelling way that will engage audiences and resonate within our time and world.
