M A D A N T S is a Warsaw-based production company, founded in 2015 by Klaudia Śmieja and Beata Rzeźniczek, recently joined by Bogna Szewczyk, aiming to produce independent films with potential for distribution and international festival access.
Since then it has become one of the most active Polish production outlets, making such films as Claire Denis' High Life (TIFF, San Sebastian FF 2018, US distribution by A24), starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche, partly shot in Poland, as well as Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson's Under The Tree (Venice FF, TIFF, US distribution by Magnolia Pictures), Babis Maridis' Sundance-selected Pity or Emir Baigazin's The River (Best Director winner at Venice Orizzonti selection).
Madants’ other co-production credits include Sofia Exarchou’s Park (TIFF, San Sebastian FF), Gabe Klinger’s Porto starring Anton Yelchin (executive produced by Jim Jarmusch), Janis Nords’ Foam At The Mouth and Timur Makarevic’s Nothing but the wind.
We are currently developing a dark hip-hop musical titled Other People, to be directed by Aleksandra Terpińska (The Best Fireworks Ever – Semaine de La Critique) and we are involved in several upcoming productions, including among others, Agnieszka Holland’s Charlatan, Agnieszka Smoczyńska’s Silent Twins and two Icelandic co-productions Ragnar Bragason’s The Garden and The Lamb by Valdimar Jóhannsson starring Noomi Rapace.
In 2017 the company has set up a distribution venture aiming to work with art house and edgy titles, under the label of M A D N E S S D I S T R I B U T I O N.
