Valérie Anex is a young Swiss/Irish artist and filmmaker born in Lausanne (CH) and living in Berlin (DE). She stepped into cinema and the visual arts by co-directing a first long documentary "Au-delà des rêves" in collaboration with Karin Bachmann, Raphaël Van Singer and Assane Diop. After her studies at the Haute École d'Art et de Design (HEAD) where she obtained a master in critical and curatorial studies (CCC) in 2011, her photographic work “Ghost Estates” received the price of the City of Geneva and was shown in many international photography festivals and collective exhibitions. Since, she continued her own artistic work, focusing mainly on film directing. She directed and produced in collaboration with Christian Johannes Koch the movie "J'ai tout donné au soleil, sauf mon ombre" before directing "Autumn Songs" in 2016. She currently attains a master at the Film University Konrad Wolf in Potsdam-Babelsberg and prepares her first long feature "Nebulae" produced by Letterbox Collective in Zürich. Parallel to her own artistic work, she works since 2012 as a independent film editor for both documentary and fiction.
