One of the most important pillars of trigon-film is our association. Since 1986, it has made a significant contribution to ensuring that valuable films from outside the mainstream can also be seen in Swiss cinemas. You too can contribute to cultural diversity: With your membership or individual donation, you can support the work of trigon-film and thus promote filmmaking in the South and East as well as the diversity of cultures in our cinemas.
Every donation is used fully for our programme of exceptional films, for their acquisition and distribution, thus supporting productions from the South and the East. By supporting trigon-film, you are indirectly helping to shape the cinema programme in your area. Thank you very much for your support!

Her latest highly exciting documentary film Les filles d'Olfa is currently showing in Swiss cinemas.

Jiří Menzel restoration
Jiří Menzel was one of the most talented comedy directors in cinema. Born in 1938, the Czech director was just 28 years old when he won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1967 with Closely Watched Trains. trigon-film has already been involved in the restoration and translation of his films from the 1960s and 1970s, and we would now like to complete this work with three films by Menzel in the 1980s. You can support us in restoring the following three films and making them available with German and French subtitles in cinemas, on DVD and for streaming:
- My Sweet Little Village (Vesničko má středisková, Jiří Menzel, 1985)
- The End of Old Times (Konec starých časů, Jiří Menzel, 1989)
- The Snowdrop festival (Slavnosti sněženek, Jiří Menzel, 1983)
