Christian Dorsch has left the German film industry’s Munich-based promotional agency German Films Service + Marketing GmbH “to take up new professional challenges.”

Dorsch had headed the company as managing director since 1993 and oversaw the reorganization of the then Export Union of German Cinema in 2004 as German Films Service + Marketing.

His duties have been taken over “until further notice” by the current deputy managing director Mariette Rissenbeek who had been responsible until now for public relations at the promotion body.
