Oliver Schwabe has created feature and documentary films for television and cinema as an author, director and cameraman for over 20 years. His work includes numerous TV documentaries (arte, NDR, WDR, rbb) and cinema documentary films that deal with pop cultural themes, as well as the serial format “video diaries”, that he supervised and published regularly for the NDR in Hamburg from 1998 to 2010.

He is also interested in documentary inspired hybrid forms and formats, which explore the limits of the genre and which he has produced for the cinema as well as for television.

Oliver Schwabe approaches his protagonists with great curiosity but without bias and is always on the look out for themes that reveal the unexpected. He is driven by a passion for the new and unknown, together with the aspiration to get closer to his protagonists.

His films have been shown at numerous national and international festivals and awarded prizes including the Spiridon Neven Dumont Prize and was nominated for the Preis für Popkultur and the Deutschen Menschenrechtsfilmpreis.
