As Film Production has been a collective of independent filmmakers in Istanbul for over ten years, bringing together filmmakers from all over the Middle East. In 2006, its co-founder Hüseyin Karabey registered it as an offical production company in order to produce "My Marlon and Brando", which has already received some international awards, thus transforming Asi Film Production into an established and successful company in the public eyes.

Resources and facilities have been built up which are now being used by a collective of filmmakers who may be temporarily based in Istanbul but tell stories from all around the region.

Asi Film produced recently "Do Not Forget Me Istanbul" with 7 international directors.
