After working in design, Katrine Philp decided to apply her visual skills to film. She graduated from the National Film School of Denmark's documentary department in 2009. Her first film, Book of Miri, was awarded the President's Award at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and the European Young CIVIS Media Prize in Germany. Philp has contributed to DOX: LAB, where she collaborated with a Burmese filmmaker on Five Beats Before Death. She is currently developing three documentary projects with a strong social dimension.
