Beta Films’ Autentic buys into Tangram International

Autentic has bought into its documentary producing counterpart Tangram International.

Autentic is the joint venture doc producer created by German producer and distributor Beta Film and former Discovery Germany boss Partick Hoerl in 2008. It has taken a controlling stake in high-end doc producer Tangram for an undisclosed sum.

Tangram boss Dagmar Biller will remain at the production company as managing partner. Its current projects include 20-40-60: Our Life, the three-part experience documentary about three generations of Germans for ZDF and a four-part history series about major speeches of the 20th century.

Patrick Hoerl said: “A strong production company is the ideal supplement to our growing distribution business. For years now, Tangram has been one of the most successful documentary film producers in Germany. Under the direction of Dagmar Biller, the company has also proven itself in a difficult market affected by many changes.”
