Viking Film is the Amsterdam based film production company founded in 2011 by Marleen Slot. International in scope, Viking Film wants to make high-quality films for both Dutch and international audiences with a special focus on arthouse, children films and animation films. Viking Film’s basic principle is to work with young as well as established talented directors, screenwriters and crews.
