JULIA JÄNSCH
FILMMAKER

Julia spends her time trying to unearth and reveal what makes us most human. She is most inspired by the inherent and beautiful imperfections in the human condition. We all have an innate truth desperate to be discovered. And so her films seek to move and inspire audiences to go deep inside their souls. She relishes in the challenge of crafting enticing STORY, be it fact or fiction, and believes that it is through understanding raw character that gets you there.

Julia spent just under a decade working in development at FremantleMedia and RadicalMedia before going independent and telling her own stories. In 2015 she set up Southern Point Pictures and has 3 lauded shorts and an award-winning screenplay under her belt. Julia has a filmmaking diploma from The New York Film Academy, and an MBA and Masters in Global Governance from the University of Oxford.

Her film, My Father the Mover, won the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Short at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2020, was nominated for a prestigious Critics Choice Award, and was acquired by MTV Studios. She is currently packaging her narrative feature, Huberta; and in post on her debut documentary feature, Coming Home.
