OUR COMMON STORIES
AWAIT TO BE GLOBALLY TOLD

GLOBAL CONNECTION INTERCULTURAL MEDIA

GC Intercultural is an international Cinema & Television Production company aiming to globally tell multicultural stories in cooperation with its project partners all around the world.

Originally a Lausanne based Swiss company Global Connection Media Group has been operating mainly in Turkey as the sole owner of Europe’s one of the largest film sets: SEKA Deep Dreams Film Plateaus near Istanbul, Turkey.

After creating hundreds of hours of national and international promotional films and TV advertisements, about ten years ago GC Media has initiated its own cinema and TV productions: Domestic projects for Turkish TV broadcasters in co–operation with Maya Productions and multicultural projects with Global Connection Intercultural Productions.

MCC –Multicultural Coproductions– the business model initiated and pioneered by GC Media, yielded its first product as a multicultural coproduction of GC Intercultural and KIT Media of Russia: Sultan of My Heart, a period romance TV series, has been a great success in both countries.

Encouraged by this triumph, GC Intercultural Productions established solid partnerships with esteemed production companies in several countries: Spain, Poland, Brazil, Ukraine, Argentina, Russia, as well as Japan and China.

GC Intercultural has been enthusiastically working to create one–of–a–kind TV and cinema projects for the global audience with its project partners to be aired starting from Fall 2020.
