Nina Schermer


Nina brings 15 years of Film & TV production experience across multiple European countries to her role at Catalyst. Prior to joining the organisation, she handled a wide range of responsibilities, including contract management, scheduling, coordinating TV crews throughout Europe, securing development financing, establishing co-production arrangements, EU grant writing, and engaging in networking and festival pitches.

During her tenure at Catalyst, Nina has acquired an in-depth understanding of the organisation's fundamental principles and has assumed an increasingly significant role within the senior team. Over the past few years, she has been extensively involved in resolving complex issues, ranging from student and team member concerns to external-facing challenges.

With her comprehensive knowledge of German legal frameworks and their implications for our operations, Nina has served as the company's Prokurist with full powers of attorney for five years. She assumed the position of Director in January 2024.

Nina feels right at home in our creative community. Her desire to work for a change-making organisation with a positive vision and impact on the future led her to Catalyst, where she has found exactly that. Facilitating the growth, pushing boundaries, and discovering new opportunities within our community are aspects of her job that she finds most fulfilling.
