Ivy Vanhaecke lives in Brussels and is a Producer with Caviar and a participant on Inside Pictures 2015.
She was drawn to film through an endless fascination for magic on screen, a restless curiosity and the ability to respond to challenges as and when they occur. Ivy started her career as a production assistant trainee on the short Message from Out of Space starring the young Matthias Schoenaerts, handling the animals (ducks) on set. In 2006 she joined Caviar and learned the business by line producing a microbudget first feature as well as making shorts with directors including Joost Wynant, Tim Mielants and Hans Van Nuffel. Ivy was also involved in projects including as My Queen Karo (Dorothee vanden Berghe) and Dirty Mind & Left Bank (Pieter Van Hees).
For Caviar, Ivy has produced several features and TV series. Her feature Black won the Discovery Award at TIFF 2015.
Driven by magical settings, compelling characters, unexpected emotions and intriguing atmospheres, the bottom line is Ivy’s work is always storytelling.
