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.  As it was a great success story the founder KD Müller and JP Kropp transformed CMF into a small spin-off in 2011, which is still supported by its founding institutions. CMF became also a member of the Climate-KIC network in 2014, which in particular has the aim to accelerate climate innovations. 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.
