Kanchi Wichmann

Kanchi has been making short films since 1992. In 1999 her short Travelling Light came second for best film at the BBC British short film festival and was also nominated for a Bafta. In 2000 she was selected for the BBC/BFI Insight scheme to write and direct her first feature. Unfortunately in 2002 the scheme folded due to changes in film funding. She has worked in the Lux archive, many film festivals and teaching film & video to young people. Her first feature Break My Fall is due for UK theatrical release in spring 2011
