Heinz Dill

Born in 1957, Heinz Dill has always been interested in culture, and more specifically into performing arts and cinema. His main interest however went to artistic management and production.

He began as a concert promoter before becoming a music manager, producing music tours around the world from 1982 to 1993.  It is also during this period that he made his first steps in filmmaking by producing short films and his first documentaries. He truly shifted from music to cinema in 1993 when he became a location manager, production manager and later by moving into line producing.

In 1996, he founded Louise Productions and provided line production services for foreign films shot in Switzerland, such as Photographing Fairies by Nick Willing (UK -1996), La Débandade by Claude Berri (France - 1999), Chaos by Coline Serreau (France - 2000) among many.

C’est en 2001 qu’il aborde la production déléguée avec Ixième,a prisoner's diary de Pierre-Yves Borgeaud et Stéphane Blok, primé d’un Léopard d’or au Festival de Locarno 2003. Et en 2005, Desert Wind, documentaire cinéma de François Kohler.

C’est aussi l’année où Elisa Garbar le rejoint comme productrice, une collaboration qui va porter ses fruits avec la réalisation de films qui vont connaître succès et reconnaissance.
