We have decided not to update this section, as the number of people involved in each project has steadily grown and may vary from one project to the next. The films we make and their reach is a product of the time and expertise of all who are willing to contribute. We’d like to thank the many translators who have made the films available in their respective languages, as well as all who have over the years helped to spread and share our films.

Mike Horwath
Founder
 

Mike formed Queuepolitely in 2008. He is presently no longer actively involved.

Mike works in the technology industry as a producer/project manager. He used this background to create a platform and approach to filmmaking that would not immediately require the traditional routes of documentary production.

Mike feels that the coverage of crises is undertaken in a way that attempts to control the narrative and provide predefined solutions. The vision for Queuepolitely was to investigate narratives that offer solutions from a different perspective.

Inspired by the popularity of underground documentaries he sought a way to produce and distribute documentary films outside of conventional media channels.

Since forming Queuepolitely he has worked on numerous documentaries taking on roles as and where needed from conducting interviews, researching, producing and marketing.

Michael Oswald
Director
 

Michael is an independent filmmaker who is the driving force behind Queuepolitely.

more…

Michael uses narrative storytelling and cinematography to produce investigative and observational films that are provocative and controversial. He takes inspiration from graphic novels and aims to discover, understand and communicate ideas that are given less attention than they deserve.

He is proficient in the entire documentary production process, taking projects from concept to completion. This provides him with the ability to produce documentaries that are completely independent.

He studied Philosophy and Social Anthropology prior to discovering filmmaking. He worked for a number of years as an editor and lighting cameraman, later taking on the role of director.

Michael rejected an offer to collaborate with the intelligence services, favoring creative and editorial independence. The experience has inspired a tireless dedication to investigate and share in documentary form ideas that further an understanding of power in today’s world. Queuepolitely has given him the opportunity to create and release such films.
