Born in Hong Kong and raised in Denmark, Marianne Hansen started out in the film industry as an actor, and has trained both in London and Los Angeles. By chance she co-wrote and co-directed a play and discovered she would rather be behind the camera. After studying directing, producing and cinematography at UCLA Extension, she embarked on her debut feature “Lapse”, a film she wrote, directed and produced. She has a MA in Screenwriting from the London Film School and soon also a MA in Film and Media Studies from Copenhagen University. She has participated in MEDIA workshops and training programs across Europe, including POWR, Four Corners and TorinoFilmLab's AdaptLab. She is currently based in Copenhagen.
