Anna Ciennik Advisor First Cut Lab


Script Consultant, Talent & Project Scout (France)



Polish-born, French-educated, Anna Ciennik likes to look at the world from different perspectives.

After graduating from la fémis French film school in 2010 from the production department, she worked in various capacities – mostly as line producer and post-production supervisor – for the French Film Academy Les César and Les Films d’Ici, as well as Les Films de Pierre and Kazak productions, among others.


In parallel, she has been reading scripts for companies and institutions in France and the UK including the CNC, Why Not Productions, and Creative Films.

Anna’s interest for international independent production led her to join Paris’ Coproduction Village and Les Arcs European Film Festival as manager of the European Industry events. Between 2017 and 2021, she curated five editions of its co-production markets.



These experiences combined give Anna an in-depth and unique view into the entire journey of a film. She keeps working as a talent and project scout for various labs and markets. As a script consultant, her credits include Clara Sola by Nathalie Álvarez Mesén (Directors’ Fortnight 2021) and Amparo by Simón Mesa Soto (Cannes Critics’ Week 2021).
