Anne Lann is the Executive Coordinator at Helena.
An intense observer, Anne hopes that Helena’s projects continue to protect the fragility of humanity.
While working in finance and contemplating whether to continue her studies in a PhD program in Diplomatic History at Columbia University, Anne fell in love with cinema and decided to change her path and explore her passion for telling stories. Her work has been showcased at many film festivals, including NewFilmmakers New York, Ferrara Film Festival, and Palm Springs International ShortFest. Her USC thesis film was picked to be one of the seven films presented at a CAA showcase event. It won Best Director at the Largo Film Awards in Switzerland and was also accepted into the short film program at 2018 Cannes Film Festival. Her feature script was selected as a semi-finalist for the 2018 Sundance Screenwriters Lab and landed at the top 10% of the prestigious Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting in 2019.
In 2014, she spent her summer break working with Autism Partnership and created a feature-length documentary for the foundation, helping to bring public awareness to its comprehensive treatment programs for autistic children.
She holds an MBA in Finance from Pace University, an MA in American Literature and American History from Columbia University, and an MFA in Film & TV Production from the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Anne was born in Beijing.
