WEP FILMS - OUR MISSION

Under the umbrella of WEP FILMS, led by William Peschek, WEP Productions and the JETS Filmverleih & Vertrieb (Distribution) operate as an independent production and distribution company from Germany. We develop scripts, produce and distribute nationally and internationally as well as provide management services for co-production ventures in Germany and in the UK.

Our main aim is to create high quality productions at low-end costs to serve a growing market in the innovative independent production sector. WEP FILMS' mission is to invest in content and also in young talent - behind the camera as well as in front of it.
