Jana Pape is a director of photography who tends to fall in love with a good screenplay. A dramaturgical collaboration with the director gives her just as much pleasure as mastering technical and logistical challenges. Her heart beats for fiction and selected documentaries. Her films have been recognized at festivals worldwide; such as the Venice Biennale, Festival du Nouveau Cinéma, BUSAN, Cameraimage, DOK Leipzig, International Short Film Festival Dresden and others.
Since graduating from Babelsberg Film University in 2019 with a BA/MA degree in Cinematography, she has also worked on fictional TV formats and as a camera operator on international productions.
