I’m very grateful to my clients, peers and collaborators for providing the following testimonials about my work.

“Anna has displayed what I think is the most important of ambitions, to take her voice and her intelligence, with all the insight and eloquence that she has crafted over the years, and using it to lift up others so that they might be heard. Whether geared towards the artist filmmaker, the industry professional or the audience member Anna is skilled at adapting and evolving her approach while never compromising her own skill.”

Wendy Cook, Head of Cinema, Hyde Park Picture House

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Anna Kime since her move to Sheffield in 2014 and can attest to her dedicated involvement in a range of film, arts and community projects within the city in that time, as a professional, an artist and a volunteer. Most recently, Anna was an active and generous participant on the Pandemic Response Programme, a (largely peer to peer) CPD programme and network for women working in film exhibition, run by Birds’ Eye View on which participants (including myself) benefited from the contributions Anna brought. What Anna brings to the projects she commits to is not only big picture thinking, but just as importantly deep consideration and care, particularly for the people involved: be they the beneficiaries or the teams within the organisation itself.”
