Interspot Film – a success story
There is almost no other Austrian production company that can look back at such a long and interesting history. Everything started with Rudolf Klingohr, who founded Interspot Film in 1969 after completing his studies at the Austrian film academy and working successfully as a documentary filmmaker. 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.
Today, the company has a staff of more than fifty employees and is located in Vienna's 23. district. The extensive company facilities include the office building with its own coffee house and the adjacent studios. It is the perfect location for every type of television production
