Corinna Hackenbroch

I can truthfully say that I am working in my dream job. During my university studies of Journalism at the University of Karlsruhe and Media Studies at the University of Tübingen, I started freelancing and made several internships at radio stations, TV production companies and newspapers.

After one year living and working as production assistant in New Zealand, I came back to Germany in 2006. That’s when I started working for Leonardo Film as a Producer and Director.

Since then, I have developed and produced national and international documentaries which have been broadcasted for example on ARTE, ARD, NDR, WDR, RB, YLE, Deutsche Welle. In 2010 I also was selected for the Discovery Campus Masterschool, which was a great experience.
