With highly visual work, Katharina Hingst tells unconventional and empathetic stories through captivating, stylized narratives. An inherent passion for storytelling and creative thinking paved her way to the film industry in 2010, where she began in production. First working with Wes Anderson as an Assistant Director on THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, she later relocated to London where she continued working at Warner Bros. on major motion pictures FANTASTIC  BEASTS and WHERE TO FIND THEM— eventually taking over as the Director’s Assistant.


Heavily involved in the pre- and post-production process, it was in these roles that she gained her comprehensive experience in filmmaking. After a decade on-set and with productions, Katharina has successfully transitioned into directing. Her personal directing aesthetic is influenced by the escapism of cinema and a lifelong desire to reinterpret reality.
