Director Statement

Dear Festival Representatives,

I would love to share a part of my life with you. I have 3 diplomas and I have worked in 3 diverse fields and succeeded. Nevertheless, my biggest passion in life has always been to write scripts and shoot movies. I have shot my first movie at the age of 50 and You - Dear Festival Representatives will decide either I am talented in this field, or not. My first two feature movies that I made in 2018 (“Sholler’s archive” and “Execution day”) became the most award winning movies of Azerbaijan in international festivals. “Sholler’s archive” had 45 achievements and “Execution day” had 32 achievements all over the world. In 2019 I shot 4 documentary movies. Our latest certificated was signed by American congressman Jimmy Gomez.

I have obtained all information in “Sholler's archive” movie from my father - Gasimov Gazanfar, therefore this film is based on true stories. I produced this movie for the memory of my father and it became very successful in international festivals. “Sholler's archive” movie gained the most number of awards, achievements from Azerbaijan in international festivals. Then it inspired me a lot and I began to produce more movies, and they were successful as well. Thus, I decided to be a film director and I produced 4 documentaries in 2019, they gained achievements from the first view, too. I have a request, please help me to find somebody from the Shollers.

As soon as I finished all my movies, I submitted them to festivals merely via www.filmfreeway.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Huge thanks to www.filmfreeway.com! Via this platform, we won many awards and became finalists, semi-finalists, selected.
