Anna-Sophie Philippi studied Media and Communication Studies and Economics (BA) at the University of Mannheim (2011–2015) and Media Studies (MA) at the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF (2015–2018). In her PhD thesis "Phagic Images" (AT) she focuses on Brazilian film of the 1970s. In addition, she explores videography as a practice of research and teaching. Moreover, she is interested in educational concepts to encourage more sustainability at universities.


Prior to her academic work, Anna-Sophie was an independent film producer and co-founded the production company Contando Films with Michael Fetter Nathansky and Virginia Martin. This experience continues to shape her film thinking and viewing today.
