ABOUT WAY FILM

Way Film specializes in supporting our customers' (pre)production and distribution by way of translating, subtitling and related services. Headed by producer, director and writer Matthew Way, Way Film is the leading quality service provider in this section of the German-language market.

After studying film and scriptwriting, Matthew started as a professional film translator in Caracas, Venezuela in 1998. Since 2003, he has been working in Germany as a freelance subtitler, translator and director of related services (e.g. dubbing and audio descriptions). In 2007 he founded his first company. Together with colleagues he has processed countless movies from and into over 40 languages.

In 2015, Matthew founded Way Film Translation (now Way Film GmbH) in Berlin. Its cooperation with Under The Milky Way (Europe's biggest VOD-service) and Cinando/Marché Du Film (Cannes) was funded by the European Commission from October 2015 until June 2017. In 2020, Way Film is continuing our work on award-winning movies from Germany, Europe and the rest of the world.
