Julia Fuhr Mann was born in the South of Germany in 1987. She’s currently living in Munich as a filmmaker, curator and queer-feminist activist.
Master studies in philosophy, literature and sociology at CAU Kiel and LMU München Universities with main focus on Greek ethics, morality and aesthetics.
Since 2013 she has been a student at the University of TV and Film Munich. Her cinematic education includes mentorship by Jean Perret, Nurith Aviv and Peter Zeitlinger and journalistic courses at ARD Hauptstadtstudio, Die Zeit, funk and Vice.
Half of all film school students in Germany are female, but only ten percent of big-budget movies are made by women. In addition, the concept of genius still widely carries a male connotation.
As a genius who is set on directing big budget movies, Julia Fuhr Mann joined forces with other filmmakers to collectively stand up for gender equality. Their organization Pro Quote Film is fighting for a fair quota system within the German film business.
Julia Fuhr Mann is also curating the program of Bimovie, a feminist film festival screening underground and avantgarde films which are made by women or dealing with female-centric narratives.
Since 2018 she works for the video editorial of Süddeutsche Zeitung, an established German newspaper.
