At DokLab we are passionate about producing documentary films which are devoted to geopolitical, social or cultural topics. We aim to create films that stimulate thought and action, but which also stand the test of time. Meticulous story development and engaging analysis lie at the heart of everything we do. Our goal is to reach an international audience by tapping into universal values. In a rapidly evolving media world, we are attempting to break away from medial confines and existing formats. In our role as independent production company, we place emphasis on flat hierarchies, flexible structures and working in project-led teams. In an ever-competitive environment, we strive for fair business practices.
DokLab was founded in Bern, in 2006, as a limited liability company, by the two filmmakers Urs Schnell and Dodo Hunziker. 2019 Dodo Hunziker took over the company and Corinna Dästner joined as producer.
