juliana's bio

Juliana Pfeifer, was born on 15th of april of 1977, in Limeira, São Paulo, Brazil. At first I studied Social Sciences and later got a degree in visual arts at UNICAMP / SP. My career began as a scenographer and costume designer for theater. I got involved in film production as Art Director and Art Producer for shorts, feature films and TV series. Nowadays I pursue my career as film director. My first film “Hardly got there..” was selected for the 67th Festival of Cannes - Short Film Corner. Living between Campinas and Berlin, I wrote three stories about brazilian women who migrated there. In the end of 2018 I got funding to develop these ideas and the project became a trilogy comprising two short films and a feature one. In 2019 I raised the funding for the first short, “Ocupa”, that premiered August 24th at the 31st São Paulo International Short Film Festival. Currently I am fundraising for the second short ,“Where are you?”, and writing the feature’s second draft "I won't be back".
