Vanessa Ndombe

Director // Editor

Native of Democratic Republic of the Congo, I have a Bachelor degree in Social Communication, a Master’s degree in Journalism and Multimedia, and now a Master’s degree in Filmmaking as Director and Editor. I directed my first short film in 2017. It was an adaptation from a book to the big screen. I knew from that moment what would be the next step, including leaving the country, to learn from the best, with the best in the US.

Dreams are what keep me going. Today, I dream of going beyond everything I’ve learned so far. I want to make movies that tell captivating stories, people’s stories. I also know that movies are not just a storytelling device. They are a powerful catalyzer of change, knowledge, education, power and freedom. So, let’s make movies!
