Lisa Jilg was born in Munich. She gained her first experience in film during an internship at the HFF Munich. There she got in touch with analog photography and started to shoot and develop her own photo series.
After graduating from high school, she decided to study photography. During an internship in the photo department of the label MARC O’POLO, she realized that the stories she could tell through light and atmosphere touched her so deeply that she missed the spoken word and movement- so she began shooting her first short films while working as a camera assistant for television productions.
Since September 2018, she studies cinematography at the Baden-Württemberg Film Academy and will graduate in 2024 with the feature film VENA.
The photographic eye and the art of bringing stories to life through a single picture still influence her work today.
Her last short film DIGNITY KEEPER was nominated for the German Short Film Award and can currently be seen in the Arte Mediathek alongside with her short film VIKA. In 2023, as part of the ZDF Kleines Fernsehspiel, she accompanied four aspiring police officers from the Berlin Police Academy for a year. The documentary Portrait about the designer William Fan was part of the opening of the Berlin Fashion Week and is now available in the ARD Mediathek. The feature film VENA will be released in 2024 by distribution of Weltkino.
Lisa currently lives in Stuttgart and will move to Berlin in 2024.
