The movie was a collaboration of Fabio Magnifico (MPL), Dr. Thomas Walden (Faculty of Educational Science) and Alex Böke (B2Cam company). It premiered on July 2nd 2010. Thomas Walden, who wrote the screenplay, additionally issued a book of the same title (Die Bielefeld Verschwörung. Der Roman zum Film. Pendragon Verlag, Bielefeld 2010). Moreover, a comic book containing cartoons by EMBE was published (Die Bielefeld Verschwörung. Der Comic. Pendragon Verlag, Bielefeld 2010). The movie soon became common talk in Bielefeld and has by now gained iconic status.
