The Luksuz Production is the video production arm of the Society of Allies for Soft Landing, Krško (DZMP) established in 1997. Its first professional project was Boris Petković’s short fiction film Forward (1998) which was invited to several international film festivals. Since 2001 Luksuz Production premises have become an important “video classroom” for young video creators and a production centre for new generations of film and videomakers. It is one of the pioneers in the democratisation of film as a medium in Slovenia.

Since 2001 Luksuz Production has been intensifying its educational activities. It runs an international youth exchange programme involving film workshops and seminars. Some of its projects have received support from EU institutions and organisations and have been included in their programmes, like the project of intercultural dialogue named Divided God which involved around 40 young participants from different parts of Europe working on documentary films (the workshop was led by well-known film maker Želimir Žilnik) and was supported by the EU programme Youth in Action, the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) and the Public Fund for Cultural Activities of the Republic of Slovenia.
In 2009 the DZMP project Together on the Road was launched: a group of Roma youngsters from Slovenia, France, Serbia and Kosovo explored and filmed the Roma culture under tutorship of professional film-makers for 9 months, and eventually made three documentaries. The project got the grant of the Balkan Incentive Fund for Culture (ECF).
DZMP has also been involved in many others film projects and events. It cooperates regularly with Kino Otok – Isola Cinema Festival in organising film workshops and in 2007 it co-produced Boris Petković’s feature film Paris.love with Gustav Film.
In 2003 Luksuz Production launched the Luksuz Cheap Film Festival as a showcase for short and low-budget film productions by both domestic and foreign experimental and alternative directors and activists.
