The Munich-based company Tiberius Film GmbH & Co. KG was founded by Wolfang Carl in 1999 and initially concentrated on expanding the home entertainment division. Cinema rights were not an issue, they were waited out by various partners.
Sunfilm Entertainment Handels- und Vertriebs GmbH was founded by Wolfang Carl in 2001. At the beginning, Sunfilm is dedicated to the release of films on DVD and VHS. At that time, however, Sunfilm Entertainment was already seen as a label, which was primarily devoted to the home entertainment division.
Both companies were united under the parent company Tiberius GmbH.
In 2004, Tiberius Film decided to no longer handle theatrical distribution through partners, but to take matters into their own hands.
The Sunfilm Entertainment label took over the entire home entertainment area from Tiberius Film. The latter now concentrated primarily on the distribution of films to cinemas and television.
In early 2013 the parent company Tiberius GmbH was converted into a holding company. The structure of the two subsidiaries was also changed. As a first step, the company Tiberius Film GmbH & Co. KG was dissolved. As a second step, the company Sunfilm Entertainment Handels- und Vertriebs GmbH was renamed Tiberius Films GmbH.
