We all remember a movie that changed our outlook on the world.
Alva Film is a dynamic production company established in Geneva since 2005. Alva Film grew as a collective dedicated to documentary film before becoming a production company with an international vocation. Our films have been selected in Berlin, Sundance, Tribeca, Rotterdam and have been sold in over 50 territories. Our production partners are in France, Belgium, Kosovo, Georgia or Peru and we can count on their expertise in transnational collaboration to enable inspired filmmakers to reach audiences around the world.
We love movies that reveal underrepresented social issues from intimate details of life. We also love films that push the boundaries of imagination, form and emotion. We love the mix and the inclusion, the chaos that illuminates, the modesty that exalts, the ardor that denounces.
Our mission is to produce films that dare to show us the world and the human with its fears, its desires, its vulnerabilities, its cowardice, its dizziness, its illusions, its rage for life. With our filmmakers, we engage in cinematographic approaches that are often personal, sometimes risky, always inspired. Together, we strive to share these emotions with thousands of strangers. Because we believe that cinema offers the possibility of a social reverse shot by constructing new representations.
Cinema can change the world, we can change cinema.
