The Red Earth project currently has the support of two production companies: Labalanza Producciones (Spain) and Filmline Productions (Germany)



LABALANZA is an independent film production company founded in 2006 in Seville (Andalucia, Spain). Its principal objective is in making cinematographic works that, for their subject matter, originality and technical quality, aspire to spread universal or cultural values from different European territories to the rest of the world. Labalanza has the support of an internationally recognized technical and artistic team that foments the incorporation of new ideas in emerging cinema. Their projects, supported by regional and national film funds, have obtained international acclaim in prestigious film festivals around the world; have been shown in universities, museums and academic institutions for their educational value and on important public and private television channels as well as different digital platforms.
In our view, to make cinema implies an enormous social responsibility and for this reason we only select projects of depth, quality and originality, as a signature stamp of our business.
