Emotionfilm has produced over 30 films, including short films, documentaries, feature films (also an animated feature film), and a number of video projects. Its films have been screened at numerous festivals the world over and have won many accolades. Its most successful production, Idle Running [V leru] (1999) by Janez Burger received over 20 awards.
