Clara Miranda Scherffig is an Italian writer and film professional living in Berlin, Germany. After some time in independent publishing (VICE Media, Archive Books), she shifted her focus to film while completing her M.A. in Visual Anthropology. She specialized in sales and marketing of art-house films at Coproduction Office, working on titles by established and upcoming auteurs alike (including Jessica Hausner, Roy Andersson, Susanne Heinrich), and recently started to collaborate with festivals focussing on moving-image works (BFMAF Berwick, EMAF Osnabrück). Today she oversees festivals and distribution at the Babelsberg Konrad Wolf Film University while freelancing as a consultant for debut features, and as a writer/critic for a number of Italian and English-speaking outlets (Reverse Shot, Cinema Scope, Screen Slate, Another Gaze, il Tascabile). Clara is an alumna of the Locarno Critics Academy and the Torino Film Lab Audience Design programme.
