The world is full of relevant topics and exciting people. According to this motto, Stephanie Drescher starts every new day as managing director of Basiliscus Film. With more than twenty years of professional film and TV experience, she always searches for interesting topics, goes into research and looks at every new film project with the curious gaze of the journalist.
Stephanie Drescher studied American Studies and Romance Studies/French. After her studies, she worked in the planning department of the news station N24 in Munich (now WELT in Berlin), shortly before the launch of the TV-Channel.
