Graphilm was founded in Rome in 1988 by Maurizio Forestieri as a production studio for animated products such as TV series, feature films, video clips, and commercials. Graphilm’s productions have been selected and entered in competitions at the Festival de Cannes and at the Berlinale. One of the studio’s short animation films was chosen to represent Italian animation in an official projection at New York’s MoMA. In over twenty-five years of activity, Graphilm has won both national and international prizes and acknowledgments in the animation sector’s most important official events. The know-how connected to animation, along with extensive cinematographic experience, makes Graphilm one of the most all-round and professionally advanced studios in the sector, able to create the right mix of art and industry, cartoon tradition and new technologies (Web environments and CGI).
Beginning with the know-how acquired in 20 years of production activity and market experience, Graphilm aims to consolidate and expand its role as a high-quality producer in the field of animated TV series and feature films, distinguished by stylistic concepts and choices that are up to date with market trends.
