Decision Maker 2016


After I completed my studies in Business Administration in Paris, I decided to have a break and work as a tour guide in the jungle in Costa Rica. Back to Europe, I went to Germany where I first worked at a film festival where I was taking care of international programme research. I started to produce TV and feature documentaries and loved it. I applied for the German-French Film Masterclass (FEMIS/FILMAKADEMIE LÜDWIGSBURG) where I got my first knowledge of film financing, production and distribution processes in Europe. I then directly started as documentary producer at zero one film in Berlin where I worked until I moved to the beautiful city of Hamburg. There I have been working since 2011 first as advisory consultant for international co-productions and then as head of funding at the Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein. I was part of EAVE 2014.

company profile

The Filmfoerderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein provides funding and competent support for feature films and TV productions of exceptional quality. As a financing body it has for the year 2018 presumably 12 million euros at its disposal.
