We are aiming at socially and personally relevant content and stories, not allowing ourselves to be hindered by types of films, genres and the length of films.
Part of our vision is unique artistic style of our productions. We seek to collaborate with authors with a recognizable way of storytelling, who show genuine motivation and passion for their projects. We strongly believe in creative and engaging producing form starting idea to release, that is why we decided to establish in-house distribution for our own production.
Why the name Bela film?
In German, Weiss means white which symbolizes perfection and positiveness and is most often seen as the symbol of perpetuity and absoluteness. It is the nothingness that everything can evolve from.
White Carniola (in Slovene: Bela krajina) is a small and remote region in the South-East of Slovenia where we, Ida and Maja Weiss, grew up. It is one of the most beautiful and intact corners of Slovenia, well-known for its hospitable people.
