The Luksuz Production is the video production arm of the Society of Allies for Soft Landing, Krko (DZMP) established in 1997. Its first professional project was Boris Petkovći's short fiction film Forward (1998) which was invited to several international film festivals. Since 2001 Luksuz Production premises have become an important "video  classroom" for young video creators and a production centre for new  generations of film and videomakers. It is one of the pioneers in the  democratisation of film as a medium in Slovenia.

In 2009 the DZMP project Together on the Road was  launched: a group of Roma youngsters from Slovenia, France, Serbia and  Kosovo explored and filmed the Roma culture under tutorship of  professional film-makers for 9 months, and eventually made three  documentaries. The project got the grant of the Balkan Incentive Fund  for Culture (ECF).

Since 2001 Luksuz Production has been intensifying its educational  activities. It runs an international youth exchange programme involving  film workshops and seminars. Some of its projects have received support  from EU institutions and organisations and have been included in their  programmes, like the project of intercultural dialogue named Divided God which involved around 40 young participants from different parts of  Europe working on documentary films (the workshop was led by well-known  film maker Želimir Žilnik) and was supported by the EU programme Youth in Action, the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) and the Public Fund for Cultural Activities of the Republic of Slovenia.

In 2003 Luksuz Production launched the Luksuz Cheap Film Festival as a showcase for short and low-budget film productions by both  domestic and foreign experimental and alternative directors and  activists. It has also been involved in many others film projects and  events. It cooperates regularly with Kino Otok - Isola Cinema Festival in organising film workshops and in 2007 it co-produced Boris Petković's feature film Paris.love with Gustav Film.
