Several important film and television projects helped the rapid growth of the company. Interspot Film became one of the largest production companies in the country. National and international awards continued to prove that Interspot Film was on the right path. Rudolf Klingohr received four ROMYs, Austria's most prestigous television award, for his role as producer. In 2012, he handed the company over to his two sons, Nikolaus and Nils Klingohr.
