About Aning Film
"A film production company" while simple and true, is also relative, especially when told from the creative mind of the company founder and principal producer Matija Radeljak, a versatile artist and producer who spent his life on theater stages and film sets self-educating himself, never stopping his pursuit for the perfect blend of artistic expression and practical, positive change.
With its priorities never clouded, at Aning Film we enjoy the liberty to experiment with storytelling and business endeavors beyond film, in turn further expanding our global network of trusted clients, partners and friends, certainly our greatest asset.
Aning Film is a dynamic and innovative audiovisual production company based in Zagreb, Croatia. Founded in 2010 by Matija Radeljak, a young entrepreneur and filmmaker with a background in various independent productions, Aning Film has quickly established itself as a leading European production house that embraces creativity, cutting-edge storytelling, and cross-media platforms.
Beginning as a division within a 20-year-old family-owned company, Aning Film has evolved and modernized under the leadership of Matija Radeljak. With a fresh, youthful approach to filmmaking and an extensive international network, we've quickly made a name for ourselves on the European film scene, extending our reach beyond Croatia's borders.

Our mission is to identify, support, and propel artists who seek to communicate with the world through art, while producing high-quality audiovisual content that pushes the boundaries of creativity and storytelling. We strongly believe in transparency, equality, creativity, and efficiency, striving to create processes that blend these qualities to provide the world with the best film experiences.
At Aning Film, we pride ourselves on our dedication to the art of filmmaking and our genuine passion for supporting the creative visions of our clients. As a small company with over 13 years of experience in the Croatian film industry, we've grown and adapted to the ever-changing landscape while staying true to our core values of professionalism, creativity, and collaboration.
We are strong believers in philosophies of Ingmar Bergman, John Cassavetes, Francis Coppola and Quentin Tarantino. We represent film firstly as an art form, which in turn makes it not only a key witness to the evolution of humanity, but a significant factor in it. As such, we find it a basic human right to consume and express one self with cinema.
We find great confidence and optimism for the near and far future of cinema and art in general. Already existing technologies that assure decentralization, transparency and freedom of audience and artists from interest groups, promise a new golden age of art, social evolution and global nlightenment. We find ourselves to be very lucky to be a thriving production company in such historical times.
