HENRIK MEYER

Producer

Henrik Meyer jump-started his producing career with the most successful German theatrical release in 1995, hit comedy TALK OF THE TOWN and ran Studio Hamburg’s feature arm for the following decade. His last production there was Margarethe von Trotta’s award-winning Venice-contender ROSENSTRASSE, which became one of the most successful foreign-language films at the US box-office in 2004. 

 

His films in Canada include Paul Fox’s EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN based on Douglas Coupland’s script, winning Leo Awards for Best Picture and Best Screenplay as well as Best Canadian Film at VIFF, Berlinale-competitor GOLD and multi-award-winning SHANA–THE WOLF’S MUSIC. 

 

Henrik co-founded Cedar Island Films with Andrew Williamson in 2018, jointly producing the feature-length documentaries THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN, THE SEARCH and THE MAGNITUDE OF ALL THINGS (Doc Weekly: “one of the Top 10 docs coming out in 2021”).

He increasingly focusses on LGBTQ2S+ content in his professional life and on Buddhist practice and studies in his personal life.
