Founded in the 1970s by Jenny Steiner, the company went on to produce feature films (e.g. Rattenfänger by Michael Gautsch, 1983) and TV programmes (e.g. Samstag Abend in Oberkärnten). In the early eighties Cinetop Film managed the Volkskino Klagenfurt for which it built a viewing theatre that is still in use today. Cinetop Film has since worked closely with other production companies and has spread its activities to new media.
