Sofia Caessa grew up by the canals of Overschie, the Netherlands, the skyscrapers of São Paulo, Brazil and the beaches of Cascais, Portugal. Her love for Theatre took her to New York City, where she intended to pursue a career in Theatre. Instead, she became involved in filmmaking and writing. After a few years in the USA, Sofia decided to move back to Europe. In Brussels she worked for Violeta Lab, a cultural organization she founded, and in film production. There, she founded the Little Film Academy.
Sofia is also the creative director of Lêleh Land, a Portuguese-based children’s publishing house. Further, she is also involved in creative workshops for kids and screenwriting. Sofia works from her home studio in sunny Cascais.
