The Climate Media Factory (CMF) started as a joint project of Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Film University Babelsberg "Konrad Wolf" in 2009.  During this time it was supported by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research and the European Climate-KIC and according to the program support regulations it was converted into a spin-off by the founders KD Müller and JP Kropp. Since 2014 CMF is also a member of the Climate-KIC network in 2014. It is our philosophy to develop scientifically sound and entertaining climate media and climate services. Our products range from animated movies, documentations, serious games, education/training tools, web-based climate services and consultancy and are developed exclusively or with partners.

Climate Media Factory and its products received several awards, for example, the CleanTech Media Award in 2012 (cf. right). In 2013 we were nominated for the Award ZEIT WISSEN "Encouraging Sustainability". Furthermore, our products have been screened at several international festivals and were already awarded or have been nominated for various awards, e.g. Deauville Green Awards, International Short Film Festival Berlin, Think Forward Film Festival, San Francisco Green Festival, and others.
