Sunny Side Spotlight: Terra Mater Factual Studios


Terra Mater Factual Studios arrives at Sunny Side of the Doc with Borneo: Earth’s Ancient Isle, which takes viewers on a journey to one of the most biodiverse places on the planet.

Tiny marsupials from Australia with a taste for blood, bone and meat take the spotlight in Cute Little Killers. “This film tells the story of some of the strangest and rarest predators with pouches and the equally unusual people who track their secret lives,” says Sabine Holzer, the company’s head of specialist factual.

The behaviors of dragonflies and damselflies are under examination in Dragons & Damsels. The plan for Sunny Side of the Doc is to “finalize some editorial discussions with potential partners to be able to start production right after summer,” Holzer says.

“We’re not only bringing new hours of available programming, but we’ll also bring new projects to the market that require co-production and presale funding,” adds Holzer.
