British born, though mostly Spanish raised, Arianne Sved holds a B.A. in Film and Video from the London College of Communication, where she was tutored by respected feminist film theorist Laura Mulvey and internationally acclaimed director Ken Loach among others. She later broadened her filmmaking skills with courses and workshops in production, directing, editing and dubbing in Spain, Germany and the USA.
Arianne has worked on a number of films and TV shows in various capacities, including as an Art Director on Mannheim Festival Winner China Lake, and has written/directed three short films, including Diese Frische Morgenluft (This Fresh Air of Dawning), screened at the Clairmont-Ferrand and Edinburgh Fringe festivals. She has also written two award-winning screenplays: Nowa’s Dream (short) and Back Game (feature drama thriller). More recently, she made two short videos about the global movement for real democracy, which she has participated in since the emergence of the Spanish 15M and US Occupy protests in 2011.
Arianne has also employed her bilingual language expertise over the years as a translator, interpreter and editor/proofreader (in English and Spanish) in a broad variety of fields −journalism, film, academia, art, science and marketing among others− both in written and audiovisual formats.
