Her latest feature films Endzeit - Ever After (directed by Carolina Hellsgård, 2018) and My Extraordinary Summer with Tess (directed by Steven Wouterlood, 2019) premiered at major film festivals like Toronto International Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival and will be theatrically released all over the globe.

Right after accomplishing her Master's degree in film scoring at University for Film and Television Konrad Wolf in 2016 she won the German Film Music Award as Best Newcomer for her score to Nelly's Adventure (directed by Dominik Wessely, 2016).

Franziska Henke creates distinct sound worlds for every film by combining acoustic sounds with electronic elements. She worked with orchestras like the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg and the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt.

Currently she scores Constantin Films' The Hidden Life of Trees based on the bestseller by Peter Wohlleben.

Franziska Henke as composer, performer and DJane in one person. What you could experience now is hardly to excel in its concept of creativity. (...) spherical, vitreous sounds, sometimes electronic, hypnotic, structurally almost like minimal music. (...) an exciting, mind broadening performance.
— Daniel Huschert, Auftakt (issue 03-2018)
