Iridium Film is a film production and post-production company founded in 2015 by Bojan Mastilović and Janez Ferlan. It is based in the historic town of Škofja Loka, approximately 24 km northwest of Ljubljana. Its main focus is on international co-production, particularly of feature films, although it also provides post-production and film restoration services, and has acted as sole producer on several projects. It is the successor to the RestArt production company.

Production highlights

Iridium's highest-profile feature film project to date is Muškarci ne plaču (Men Don't Cry, 2017), a Bosnian film that examines the psychological aftermath of the Yugoslav wars of the early 1990s. It was selected as the Bosnian entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2018 Oscars and won the Special Jury Prize at the 2017 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. Iridium also picked up a Vesna Award for Best Minority Co-Production at the Festival of Slovenian Film (FSF) in the same year.

Other major projects include the feature films Žaba (The Frog, 2017, Bosnia-Slovenia) and Komedija solz (A Comedy of Tears, 2016, Slovenia-Italy), and the Cairo-set, Lebanese-made documentary Al Gami'ya (2018). Iridium's predecessor, RestArt, also received a Special Mention from the Los Angeles Film Review for its VFX work on Odmevi časa (Echoes of Time, 2013, Slovenia), Ema Kugler's multi-award-winning experimental film, and a Vesna for Best Minority Co-Production at FSF for the Serbian feature film Varvari (Barbarians, 2014).

In 2019 Iridium received Slovenian Film Centre funding to co-produce Homo (Only Human, 2020) by North Macedonian director Igor Ivanov. It also received its first Creative Europe development funding for FC Svoboda (FC Freedom), a feature film to be directed by Boris Petkovič.

Restoration

The company has become more interested in film restoration in recent years, working on a number of Slovenian and Yugoslav classics, including Remington (1988, restored in 2017); To so gadi (Real Pests, 1977/2017); Dolina miru (Valley of Peace, 1956/2016); and Na svoji zemlji (On Our Own Land, 1948/2017).
