AdaptLab Participant 2016


Born in Paris in 1990, Minna Prader grew up in France but was raised in a bilingual culture due to her Swiss-German origins. After studying Philosophy, she completed a Master in Audiovisual Production at the National Audiovisual Institute. She worked as a script doctor assistant at Initiative Film and as a production assistant in the production company Les Films Pelleas. From this experience, Minna Prader expanded her skills to develop her own projects. She entered the Art School of Lausanne (ECAL) where she started writing her first feature film project, the adaptation of YOUTH WITHOUT GOD, supervised by director Katell Quillevere and writer Florence Seyvos. Before graduating in June 2016, she developed a detective series for a Geneva production company with a collective of writers. In 2015, Minna Prader directed her first short film SEVDAH TO OLGA during a workshop at the Film Factory (Sarajevo) under Hungarian director Bela Tarr’s supervision. In 2016, she directed her second short film, RESIGNATION, and is currently developing the next one for a shooting planned in 2017.
