“Fortune Cookie Film GmbH” was founded in 2006 by Ulrike Grote and Ilona Schultz. Both met and came to appreciate each other while studying at the Hamburg Film School. Ulrike Grote, at that time already a seasoned and multi-award-winning theatre and television actress, learned the directing trade from Hark Bohm. Her graduation film “Runaway” already won the student Oscar and earned her an Oscar nomination. The “Fortune Cookie Film” stands for the passion of storytelling, discovering strong characters, drawing true-to-life stories and, of course, a good sense of humor. Telling the existential with a wink – that is the strength of all “Fortune Cookie” productions.
