Dr. Rita Schlamberger


Rita Schlamberger is an internationally successful director and producer of nature films from Austria. Before starting her career as a film maker she studied biology and graduated with a Ph.D. from the University in Graz.
As a student she discovered her passion for the submarine world, and her many dive expeditions led her to ulterior regions of the world.
In 2006 she made her pilot‘s license and after filming the Alps she succeeded making spectacular aerial shots in Africa for a film about the Sambesi.
In 1992 she founded the ScienceVision film production together with her husband Michael. Since then she produces a vast number of international award-winning nature documentaries for BBC, Discovery, National Geographic, ZDF, NDR, NHK, THIRTEEN WNET, ORF, Servus TV and many more.
Following the multiple awards winning Universum documentary „Donau – Lebensader Europas“ (Europe‘s Amazon), her current film „Zurück zum Urwald –Nationalpark Kalkalpen“ (Making an Ancient Forest) shows the incredible strategies applied by the “organism forest” to achieve the reconversion into a primeval forest.
