HENRIK MEYER

Producer

Henrik Meyer immigrated to Canada as an accomplished German producer and now lives together with his husband in Vancouver’s Westend.

 

He jump-started his producing career with the most successful German theatrical release in 1995, Rainer Kaufmann’s hit comedy TALK OF THE TOWN and became the inaugural head of Studio Hamburg's LETTERBOX shingle. His last production in Germany was Margarethe von Trotta’s award-winning Venice-contender ROSENSTRASSE, which received a gala presentation at TIFF and became one of the most successful foreign-language films at the US box-office in 2004.  

 

His first film in Canada a year later was Paul Fox’s EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN based on renown author/artist Douglas Coupland’s script, winning Leo Awards for Best Picture and Best Screenplay as well as Best Canadian Film at VIFF. Since then, Henrik has produced television programs and feature films in Canada, most of them with European partners, including 2013 Berlinale-contender 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 as well as service producing German television in British Columbia and the Yukon.

 

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