Ania Hendryx Wójtowicz
Poland / America
Ania Wójtowicz is a creative producer based in Qatar.


Ania’s dual Polish-American sense of identity and uprooted lifestyle heavily inform her perspective; her projects emphasize cultural hybridity and explore the intersections of film with other creative fields such as architecture, fashion and fine art. Ania started her career in film studies, but quickly shifted to filmmaking. After working as a directorial assistant on several feature films, she cut her teeth as an AD and producer on numerous large-scale international commercial projects and museum films. In 2015 she returned full-time to her creative roots, joining the the Doha Film Institute to support the local filmmaking community through the Institute's intensive filmmaking, producing, screenwriting, and practical training programmes, and has played a key role in the production of over 30 short films in her four years there. Her team also proudly organizes the yearly Doha Film Institute industry event "Qumra," where Ania is responsible for the short film programme.

In 2016, Ania's video and sound installation "Fully Furnished" was commissioned and exhibited as part of the Oslo Architecture Triennale around the theme After Belonging. In recent years, her creative work has centered around a long-term collaboration with artist Sebastian Betancur Montoya as his producer for projects ranging from a complex 2018 endurance-performance/public art installation piece commissioned by Qatar Foundation [“Drift & Dissever”] to this new video art piece for ”The Place I Call Home" exhibition.
