Franziska Sonder

Producer (Switzerland)

After finishing her degree in Film at the Lucerne University of Applied Science and Arts in 2009, Franziska Sonder first started working as a freelance production manager and assistant with different companies. Between 2012 and 2015 she was mainly involved with projects for Dschoint Ventschr Filmproduktion, such as DORA OR THE SEXUAL NEUROSES OF OUR PARENTS and IRAQI ODYSSEY. In 2015 she participated in the “Atelier in Ludwigsburg-Paris” – a one year further education program for the European film market organised by MEDIA at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg and film school La Fémis in Paris. This valuable experience led to the production of the short film DIE LIZENZ which was shown at numerous festivals and premiered on ARTE. Finally, Franziska’s first feature length documentary DIDA (by Corina Schingruber Illić and Nikola Illić) is currently in production and the feature length documentary MERCI DE VOTRE VISITE by Julia Furer and DIE SCHICHT by Luka Popadić are in financing.
