About Sevana Films…


The Cannes-based film production company Sevana Films was founded in 2017 by Anaïs Calmels and Séverine Tibi, who currently live in Paris and London, respectively. Sevana Films’ purpose is to find, nurture and promote talented and unique emerging filmmakers from all over the world. We are committed to give a voice to those that are usually not heard.

So far we have worked on three films on three different continents: a feature documentary in Tahiti : Fenua Aihere, the Heart of Tahiti (52 min, broadcast on French TV – France Ô – in 2018), a short film in London, Cindy, (which recently premiered at the 30th Melbourne LGBT Queer Film Festival) and a short film in Seattle, The Ref (in post-production). We are now at different stages of production on numerous projects, both fiction and documentary.

We regularly attend international film festivals (such as Clermont-Ferrand, Cannes and Toronto) as consultants, through talent development programs or to look for the next generation of storytellers. In March 2019, we were International Mentors at SXSW to share our experience on the European market.

In April 2019, Séverine won a John Brabourne Award from the Film and Television Charity to develop Sevana Films’ slate.
