Who is

Margaret von Schiller founded with Marisa del Pino in 2013. Since Marisa left in 2015 Margaret is running on her own with the help of the finest collaborators.


Margaret was born in December 1956 in South Germany.
After finishing college, her family immigrated to Almeria, Spain while she completed an apprenticeship in cabinet making. Following this, she spent several years in France, the UK and Spain, intensifying her skills in restoring antique furniture. Returning to Germany in 1983 she opened her own workshop, but also created short programs in radio broadcasting, storytelling her travels, thereby exploring a whole new talent. She started exploring film as assistant director on International film productions, which drew her interest increasingly towards producing and directing culture-related TV films. She travelled the South American Continent and later developed a special passion for the South Pacific, due to her family links with the island of Tahiti.

In 1990 the Panorama section of the International Berlin Film Festival invited her to join their then still small team, where she remained for sixteen fruitful years.
In 2006 she left the Berlinale. She immigrated to Almeria, where she restored her parents house and property and after a short period of serving for other smaller film festivals decided to bundle her skills in the arts, crafts and comunication in a small property service company
