Polish-born, French-educated, Anna Ciennik likes to look at the world from different perspectives.
After graduating from la fémis French film school in 2010 from the production department, she worked in various capacities - mostly as line producer and post-production supervisor - for the French Film Academy Les César and Les Films d’Ici, as well as Les Films de Pierre and Kazak productions, among others.
In parallel, she has been reading scripts for companies and institutions in France and the UK including the CNC, Why Not Productions, and Creative Films.
Anna’s interest for international independent production led her to join Paris’ Coproduction Village and Les Arcs European Film Festival as manager of the European Industry events. Between 2017 and 2021, she curated five editions of its co-production markets.
These experiences combined give Anna an in-depth and unique view into the entire journey of a film.
Anna is a member of the Collectif 5050, and a bit of wine and language geek.
When consulting on scripts, Anna puts her skills at the service of the author's vision.
She intervenes at different stages of development, adjusting to the writer’s and production's needs.
At times, script midwife, story architect, character psychologist, empathy is her drive.
She believes the craft of scriptwriting is one of humility and playfulness and that films can have an impact.
Apart from working privately for writer-directors and producers, Anna is a script consultant for several development labs including BoostNL founded jointly by Holland Film’s Meetings & Rotterdam’s Cinemart, Open Doors Hub, Lab & Consultancy run by Locarno Film Festival, Plot Script Lab attached to IndieLisboa and finally Alpi Film Lab, a newly created scheme by TorinoFilmLab and the Italian Cinema Film festival of Annecy.
She works in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Polish, and is used to working on films coming from a wide range of worldviews and cultures and to dealing with different storytelling styles.
Clara Sola by Nathalie Álvarez Mesén, a swedish/costa-rican coproduction, and Amparo by Simón Mesa Soto, a colombian/swedish/german film, her first official credits as a script consultant, premiered at the Director’s Fortnight and the Critics' Week in Cannes 2021.
Talent & Project Scout • Market Adviser
Anna has a strong understanding of both script development and the market, she is involved in the selection committees of many funding bodies and labs.
Thanks to her numerous attendance to festivals and trainings, she benefits from a strong network in the author-driven independent film industry.
She puts these skills at the service of markets and sales companies as a talent & project scout, matchmaker, roundtable moderator and sometimes as a speaker herself.
‟The difference between life and the movies is that a script has to make sense, and life doesn’t.”
Joseph L. Mankiewicz
