French national Vanessa Ciszewski started her path into production in 2000 at Gloria Films in Paris with a focus on international co-productions. Following the one-year training at L’Atelier Ludwigsburg- Paris, in 2006 she joined the production arm of Celluloid Dreams in Paris. In parallel, she produced David Dusa’s short film AMIN together with Kinomaton Munchen (UIP Award Rotterdam 2007 and nomination at the European Film Awards among others).
Two years after moving to Berlin, she founded Katuh Studio in 2011, to produce original and ambitious films for an international audience. Mikhael Hers’ THIS SUMMER FEELING, Katuh Studio’s first co-production with Nord-Ouest Films and ARTE France, supported in Germany by the FFA and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, had its international launch at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2016. The company coproduced with Andolfi/Grantit Alain Gomis’ FELICITE, Berlinale Jury's Grand Prix 2017, bringing it in German Theaters in October 2017 with the support of the World Cinema Fund.
Katuh Studio is currently coproducing Gaya Jiji’s debut MY FAVORITE FABRIC, Oscar Nominee Dror Moreh’s CORRIDORS OF POWER and producing TFL Alumni Tamara Erde’s documentary THROUGH OUR EYES.
