As an emerging director and screenwriter, Susanne aspires to create powerful and emotional short and feature films. She has studied cinema, visual arts, dramaturgy, writing and photography. In 2017, she wrotes and directed Zaya, her first professional self-directed short. Zaya has entered many film festivals around the world and has received several awards, including the prestigious Merit Award from Best Short Film at BEST SHORTS COMPETITION (California, 2017), One-Reeler Contest Excellence Award (Los Angeles, 2017), Best Direction of Photography Award at Toronto LGBT Film Festival (2018) and the Diamond Prize at the International Independent Film Awards (California, 2018).

Main Film is an artist center in independent cinematographic creation committed to support its community as whole, without any distinction.
Our strength is in our members. They are our essence.
Following the recent events, it seemed essential to offer a place so our members can express their feelings towards the discrimination they experience regarding their skin color, their origins, their sexual orientation, their gender, and share their reflections through this societal drama that takes place in all forms of rejection of one another.
Every month, Main Film will give place to its members that face discrimination so they can share with you their reflexions and thoughts.
Our sixth artist to contribute is Susanne Serres.
Because it’s the artists who carry both the role of representing society and making it evolve.
