ONIX FILM GmbH was founded in 1983 in New York, by Gabriel Baur and Kurt Mäder, as a company to make their own films; films which focus on societally relevant themes, taking risks and testing limits and transferring them to the big screen. Their work includes the formal, radical, experimental film DIE AUSNAHME UND DIE REGEL (“THE EXCEPTION AND THE RULE”), the fiction DIE BETTKÖNIGIN ( “THE QUEEN OF BED”, which won the heart of, among others, Jonas Mekas, arguably the most important supporter of independent and avant-garde cinema in den USA) as well as VENUS BOYZ, now a classic in its genre. GLOW celebrated its World Premiere at Zurich Film Festival 2017 and was theatrically released 2017/18 in Switzerland, followed by Broadcasting, Streaming & Home Market Releases for the German speaking area 2020. The US Release of GLOW through First Run Features is scheduled for 2023. Projects in development – TAKOTSUBO Feature and MATRIX LOVE Feature Documentary.
