“Making documentaries is a way of being in dialogue with the surrounding world and allowing yourself to be constantly challenged and inspired. It stems from a genuine interest in other people, perspectives and insights, and requires that you ask questions without serving up simple conclusions.” 



Set up in 1984 (as Lise Lense-Møller Film), the company has since its inception produced and co-produced a wealth of films –

both documentaries, feature films and short fiction for children. 


Magic Hour Films focuses on high-profile, author-driven creative documentaries and art-house films with international potential.


Magic Hour Films co-produces with companies from around the world and has an extended international network.  Most of the films have been internationally distributed and many of them have received a multitude of international awards. 



After working as a free-lance producer, AD and production assistant on some 15 feature films, Lise Lense-Møller in 1984 set up her own production company.   She has since then produced a wealth of films, has adviced other companies and film professionals on many more, and has also been a co-author of scripts and books.


Since 1992, Lise has worked as expert and group leader for EAVE – a European MEDIA programme with three annual international workshops for independent producers. Lise now works with EAVE in the capacity of Head of Studies.

Moreover, Lise has been leading workshops and teaching both in Denmark (e.g. at the Danish Film School The European Film College in Ebeltoft) and internationally (e.g. at Helsinki University, the Bergen Media Centre, Israeli Arab filmmakers in Haifa, EAVE (various locations)).


Lise has been active in film politics – a.o. as Board member of the Producers’ Association for some 20 years.


In addition to Magic Hour Films, Lise runs a small publishing house,

The Wisdom Books.
