Marx Film is a Tallinn-based production company, founded in 2012 by Max Tuula and Maria Gavrilova. Most of our films we made together with celebrated Russian filmmakers Aleksander Rastorguev and Pavel Kostomarov. Among them are the experimental documentary I Don't Love You by Kostomarov/Rastorguev (Warsaw IFF 2012), The Term by Pivovarov/Kostomarov/Rastorguev (Karlovy Vary IFF 2014), Kiev/Moscow by Elena Khoreva (Special Mention at Locarno IFF 2015), My Friend Boris Nemtsov by Zosya Rodkevich (Best Documentary at Krakow FF 2016) and How Big Is the Galaxy? by Ksenia Elyan (IDFA 2018, Best European Children's Documentary 2019).
After being known for political documentaries, including The Trial: The State of Russia vs Oleg Sentsov by Askold Kurov premiered at Berlinale Special in 2017, our company expanded the topics and genres of the projects we make.
We like to explore new filmmaking talents and make them known internationally.
