Moving Mountains Films
Moving Mountains films is an independent film Production Company based in Berlin, hence with a worldwide perspective. We produce creative films for Art-house Cinema and TV, developing engaging visual narratives with strong social and ethnographic connotations. Our films are characterized by a distinct authorial imprint and have been shown at renowned international festivals such as CPH:DOX, Hot Docs, Thessaloniki Film Festival, among others. In addition to self-produced films, we support projects of other independent filmmakers in the final stages of post-production and distribution.
Moving mountains is a project founded by Roser Corella and Ana Catalá, who after colliding in Berlin decided to combine forces and their crossed trajectories within the visual sphere to create films that matter. We work independently but believe in the importance of collaborations to travel even beyond.
Ana Catalá is a multifaceted producer, filmmaker and curator working between New York and Berlin. She holds a master in Visual and Media Anthropology from the Freie Universität Berlin. Her career as a producer began with credits, including Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer and Joe Wright's Hanna, but her passion for auteur cinema soon led her to co-found Berlin-based Moving Mountains Films. After a filmmaker's residency at the Tribeca Film Institute in 2018, she worked as content producer and programmer for the legendary institution before its closure, as well as a commissioning editor and producer for BBC Reel, the BBC's short documentaries' destination. Currently, she continues productions at Moving Mountains Films while curating the BBC's LongShots Film Festival, programming for Reykjavik International Film Festival and Cinema Jove and consulting documentaries for the Tribeca International Film Festival.
Roser Corella is an independent documentary filmmaker based in Berlin. She studied Visual Arts at the University of Barcelona, and completed further studies in Cuba at EICTV – International School of Cinema. Roser began her career as a video-journalist for the Catalan TV in Spain, but her interest in human stories behind global issues moved her to start self-producing and developing a personal vision within the documentary field. Corella's films are characterized by a highly visual narrative style, with social aspects. Influenced by the auteur film tradition, her work combines elements of creative documentary filmmaking with investigative journalistic research. Her Award-winning documentaries have been screened at numerous international film festivals. Her fascination for the documentary genre has led her to travel the world in search of stories that deserve to be told. Not only to witness but to challenge and raise critical questions about contemporary societies.
