Jeva Films was launched in 2008 by Cassandra Sigsgaard and since its inception has produced a diverse catalogue of films, in collaboration with established and emerging talent.
Cassandra produced the feature documentary INDIA IN A DAY for Scott Free Films, directed by Richie Mehta, which had its International Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2016. The film was released theatrically in India, and following further festival appearances, is now available on Youtube.
Her previous film, the feature debut from the Blaine brothers, NINA FOREVER, has been hailed as “strikingly original” by Screen International, and by Total Film as “a startling debut, as affecting as it is daring”. It premiered at SXSW in 2015 to great acclaim and has gone on to screen at film festivals all over the world, winning Total Film’s Best Film award at Frightfest Film Festival London, and the BIFA for Most Promising Newcomer for its star, Abigail Hardingham. It was released in the UK and Ireland by Studiocanal in 2016, and in the US by Epic Pictures.
Up-coming films include ENTER THE DRAGONS by Screen International Star of Tomorrow writer Joy Wilkinson, directed by Catherine Morshead; THE PRICE OF TEA, written and directed by Richie Mehta; and THE PAINTER by the Blaine brothers. The development slate includes the comedy, I’LL SEE MYSELF OUT, by Molly Naylor, developed with support from Creative England.
Cassandra has also established a successful practice in film clearances and product placement.

Her other recent producing credits include the BFI funded short film MARTYRS LANE, written and directed by Ruth Platt, and the Creative England/Film London funded MISS, written and directed by Drew Pautz.
Prior to Jeva Films, Katie freelanced in production, working her way through the ranks on acclaimed indie films (NINA FOREVER, SNOW IN PARADISE) and multi-million pound features (LES MISERABLES, MALEFICENT), including line producing the feature film THE BANKSY JOB for Pulse Films / Ipso Facto Productions, which premiered at Tribeca 2016.
Katie’s other work includes a stint at Saatchi & Saatchi producing for international brands, and working in the clearances department on films such as DARKEST HOUR, BRIDGET JONES’S BABY and TRAINSPOTTING 2.
