We love people and create film

FranklinFilm is a young directors’ collective founded in 2013 by Anni & Linda. The creative duo with queer and Iranian backgrounds directs & produces documentary, fiction, commercials and all the lovely formats in between. We collaborate with creatives from diverse backgrounds with differing world views, but the same common goal: to tell meaningful stories that connect people.

Annika Franke
born in 1993, currently works at the editorial department for film of TV station SWR. Speaks Khmer fluently and has a degree in Cultural Anthropology & South East Asian Studies. She is the content ambassador of Franklinfilm.

Linda-Schiwa Klinkhammer
born in 1993, currently studies directing at University of Television and Film Munich. Considers commercials an art form. Loves choreography and aesthetics mixed with realism in film. She is the artistic ambassador of Franklinfilm.
