Company Profile

 

Saga Film was founded 1987 by director and producer Hubert Toint. The company immediately sets on the trail of cinematographic and television creation (short films, documentaries, fiction films for television and feature films).

 

Saga Film rapidly becomes international and sets up a network of artistic solidarity and of co-production that has never ceased to develop and consolidate throughout its history. Key player in both Belgian and international filmmaking, Saga Film defends a cinema of emotions made of encounters and creativity, both of which are at the heart of a constant research for originality.

 

This sort of adventure is made of passions, of joys, and of doubts too. It is the work of men and women that constantly gamble on insane wagers, never giving up. This human factor has been essential in the itinerary of Saga Film. Thus, every actor, author and technician with whom we have had the pleasure of collaborating be the mainsprings of what Saga Film is today.
