UKRAINIAN DANCE MOVIE!
I am delighted to share that I have been selected as one of eight directors for the prestigious
AFI DWW+ Class of 2024 Fellowship at the American Film Institute!
What does that mean? It means that my pitched project, a short narrative father-daughter drama that takes place over the course of one evening within the world of the Ukrainian diaspora, culminating in a Ukrainian dance spectacular, has been given the "green-light" and chosen to be supported for production!
The short will be produced in the sphere of the Hollywood film industry with major support from the American Film Institute, a tuition free cinematic arts program, focusing on bringing under represented directors into main stream Hollywood. AFI provides a well of support from all professional fields and technical and creative resources, including crew and equipment.
