About us

Ginko Film is a film and audiovisual production company based in Venice with a special focus on documentary cinema. Three documentary filmmakers Chiara Andrich, Andrea Mura, and Giovanni Pellegrini, who trained at the Italian National Film School, joined together to create the company in 2018.

The Ginko tree, an incredibly resistant plant that was able to survive the extinction of the dinosaurs and the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, inspires the name of the company. Ginko Film suggests that its films are like miniature Ginko trees, able to inspire us and resist the passing of time.
