About In the Air
Family entertainment that matters
We provide high quality entertainment for children of all ages.
We primarily focus on collaborating with local film producers, so that our national cultural heritage remains available for now and in the future.
Focus and passion are the magical ingredients that ensure that our projects receive the extra attention they deserve. We carry out all work with independently operating specialists. In this way we create the most optimal exploitation plan and reach for each specific film or series.
In addition to local acquisitions, we travel the world in search of family entertainment that meets our standards and values. We want to inspire and empower children with our content.
Reliable, accessible, striving for optimal cooperation with all our customers and relations; that's who we are!
