We connect people through powerful storytelling and the celebration of food.
Pandau was born from our dedication to the craft of storytelling and our love of food. Good stories and good food have brought people together for centuries. It’s a natural combination that builds friendships and grows communities.
Everything we do comes from our desire to inform, entertain and share new ideas. From feature documentary films to community gardens and from mobile applications to environmental conservation, our goal is to deeply strengthen our connection to the world we live in.
We conduct workshops to help people grow their own food, learn how to tell their own stories and use technology to reach wider audiences. We make documentary films for theatrical and broadcast around the world. We also build mobile applications and digital networks that follow the weather and help you find what you’re looking for.

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT US
I watched the film easily from beginning to end in full-screen mode and didn’t even realize that it was 13.5 minutes long until it was over...some of the scenes were almost so intimate that I felt I should turn my head.
