Hi Everyone, I am excited to join D-word after a friend telling me I had to do it! I'm a Swedish-Iranian filmmaker that just relocated to NYC after spending the past 10 years in Spain, Sweden and Washington DC.
I have been in the industry for 5 years, working as an independent VJ/documentary filmmaker and being that I am multi-lingual and multi-cultural, I have worked mostly on topics related to those cultures providing content (both long and short form) to Voice of America's Persian service and Swedish National Television. My first long-form doc about a UFC fighter was broadcasted on Swedish national television and all throughout the Middle East. I also taught a documentary filmmaking course for a group of teenagers at Imagination Stage this past spring.
Now that I'm living in NYC, I'm looking forward to expand my filmmaking and topics to a broader audience. I'd love to connect with other filmmakers in the city in hopes of being able to partner up for various ongoing and future projects. Solo work can get a bit lonely...
I look forward to the connecting I can make on here! (btw, working on making my website, coming soon). I will be in LA the week of the 15 year party for meetings and was wondering if anyone is planning on getting together for that?
Here is the trailer to my feature film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgoJqhhJWoc&list=UUk7BT67k-fG0AoBCUE-ryMQ
Have a great weekend everyone,
