After his degree in literature with honors, german writer-producer Fritjof Hohagen worked from 2000 to 2004 as a producer at Odeon Film AG in Munich. There he participated in productions such as “Buffalo Soldiers" by Gregor Jordan starring  Joaquin Phooenix, Ed Harris and Anna Paquin or the Arthouse-drama “Rabbit Proof Fence” by Philip Noyce starring Kenneth Branagh. He also scripted and produced for Odeon the german box-office hit  "Pura Vida Ibiza" (2004).


After that he became  the creative driving force at Munich based enigma film which he founded in 2005. Since then he has produced 10 feature films including the award-winning desert drama FATA MORGANA starring German shooting-star Matthias Schweighöfer („Wanted!“), the drug-sport-drama RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! starring Max Riemelt („Sense 8“) or the film adaptation of Noble Price winner Elie Wiesel's novel DAWN starring Jason Isaacs („Harry Potter“).


Fritjof Hohagen scripted and produced the german-swiss-coproduction THE BLACK BROTHERS directed by Academy Award-winner Xavier Koller („Journey of Hope“) starring Moritz Bleibtreu („Baader Meinhof Complex“). The historical family film hit the swiss box office being the most succesful swiss (co)production in 2013 and won numerous awards as the renowned „Golden Sparrow“ 2014 for „Best Family Film“, „Best Director“ and „Best Actress“ or the Swiss „Prix Walo“ 2014 for „Best Production“.


Most recently Fritjof Hohagen produced the german-austrian drama HANNA'S SLEEPING DOGS by austrian director Andreas Gruber („The Quality of Mercy“) starring german acting legend Hannelore Elsner (Cherry Blossoms“), which won the renowned „Golden Goblet Award“ 2016 for „Best Script“ at the International Film Festival Shanhgai and sold to numerous countries.

The TV-Event-Movie UNDER THE RADAR won numerous national and international awards like the INTERNATIONAL EMMY AWARD 2016 „Best Performance by an Actress“ for main actress Christiane Paul.
