Amazonen Sports (AS Film) is a female/mixed wrestling and boxing video production company founded in Elmshorn, Germany. It produced and sold its own material, and was also the main vehicle for the sale and distribution of videos of German Mat Club and Bavarian Wildcats events (see further details of GMC and Bavarian Wildcats in their own Production Companies entries).
The company has had a complicated history since it was originally founded as Beka-Film by Andreas Miltkau with a partner in 1986. The company promoted a series of wrestling tournament events from 2000-2003 which saw early appearances of iconic wrestlers Nadege and Susanne S. By 2003 the two partners were in dispute over ownership, causing a brief hiatus before a new version of the company emerged (see the 2004 announcement below). In 2004 Andreas relaunched the company, which was now known as Amazonen Sports, with a new-look website and 4 this company operated for around another 10 years in this guise before it was incorporated into the Kontex network. Here it retained the previous website address but acquired the standard Kontex webpage design for promotion of the original AS, BW and GMC catalogue. Andreas still maintains his own separate vending operation for original material from his and other German production companies via the Clips4Sale site. Both sites now promote and sell old material only - no new events or matches have been produced since early 2014.
Since in the middle of February we are called AS film Elmshorn. Please visit our new homepage under www.asfilm.de.
We may offer the entire program of the old Beka films and can use this name immediately again after the decision of the Schleswig-Holstein (Germany) higher regional court. We are pleased that a long law case could be terminated to the benefit of our customers and the ring combat scene. Please enjoy browsing/navigating through our sites!
In addition to the above, Amazonen Sports has always been a platform for the sale and distribution of output from other production companies. At least some part of the catalogue of DT Wrestling, Steel Kittens, Triumph Studios and World of Wildcats is available to download.
