Benjamin Drechsel



Benny grew up in Munich where he did not finish his education as a sculptor and stonemason. Afterward he was working for the Bavarian State Opera and in a nice little cinema which showed only Italian and French films from the 50s to late 70s that nobody wanted to see (apart from him and a bunch of people who today all work in the cinema industry). In 1997 Benny came to Berlin to work as a post-production supervisor and as an associate producer for documentary films and feature films. In 2002 he left Berlin for Barcelona, but he came back to found Rohfilm with his former colleague and friend Karsten Stöter in 2005. Since 2016 Benny is the sole owner and producer at Rohfilm Productions.
