About Ariana Gansuh

Ariana Gansuh lives and works in Frankfurt am Main. Born in Mongolia, she immigrated with her family to Berlin in 1998, where she grew up. She studied acting at the Filmschauspielschule Berlin until 2011 and then moved to Frankfurt am Main. Since then she has been working as an actress for cinema and TV.
Since 2012, Ariana has been writing her own texts and monologues.
This resulted in her first short film project " Geschwindigkeit und Stillstand" in 2012, where she wrote the script and directed.
She is also involved in various associations in the industry and advocates for her heart's topic "Diversity". Ariana is a member of WIFT (Women in Film and TV) and the BFFS, and is also a member of the diversity AG of Hessen Film und Medien. She hosted the podcast "Schauspiel Held*innen" the podcast of the BFFS until 2021.
For the past two years, Ariana has been working intensively on two materials.
Her feature film "When the rain falls" (script funding-Hessen Film und Medien) and the short film "Oh Father" (production funding-Hessenfilm und Medien, hessische Kulturstiftung).
Ariana is very interested in furthering her education and broadening her horizons.
So she recently participated in the workshop "Club 23" by Hessenfilm und Medien, as well as in the workshop "In 5 days to your own series" by HFMA.
Currently, she is in close exchange with the renowned dramaturge Roland Zag and is writing her script for her debut "When the rain falls".
In the spring of 2022, Ariana will be shooting her short film "Oh Father" with the Frankfurt-based production company Westlight Film. She will direct her short film.
