“My ambition is to entertain the audience. And to create films, which unite fantastic stories, a different point of view and subtle social criticism. Always with a fine dose of black humor.”

Werner Fiedler


Werner Fiedler was born in 1976 and lives with his family near Klagenfurt in the south of Austria. After completing a unsatisfying education as a technical draftsman in the 90s, he worked as a motion graphics designer and started a successful career as a freelance editor, cameraman and producer for international television productions. In 2002 he made his first fictional short film and since then he has completed numerous masterclasses with well-known screenwriters and directors. For his films, he received numerous awards from international film festivals.
