Donkey Hotel is not a hotel.

It is a creative XR (eXtended Reality) and film studio that produces beautiful audiovisual creations.

Donkey Hotel houses a wealth of experience and talent in storytelling and audiovisual production. Our people are award winning filmmakers, screenwriters, video and audio creatives and producers, including multiple winners of the Finnish Film Award (Jussi Award), Finnish Commercial Film Award (Voitto-award) winner, SXSW Film Audience Award winner, Sundance Film Festival winner, and Raindance Film Festival winner.

As a cherry on the cake, Donkey Hotel is also the co-production company of an Oscar nominated documentary film.

We want to create great content and we do that with pride and joy, no matter if the idea came from ourselves or from our client.
