Nicola Stephanie Sangs, producer

Born in Germany, Nicola was very lucky that her studies brought her to The Netherlands, Canada and Australia. After graduating in international media management, she worked as a post-production coordinator and junior producer on Golden Kingdom, the first fiction filmed in Myanmar, which won the Best First Feature Award at the 2015 Berlinale in Berlin, Germany. Soon after, she commenced her master at DocNomads, a mobile film school taking place in Portugal, Belgium and Hungary. Since her graduation Nicola has been working as a producer and director. During her studies she made many creative documentary short films, of which her short documentary Apnoe premiered at DocLisboa, 2016. Others were awarded and well received at international film festivals and art exhibitions.
