Director Biography - Kateryna Zabulonska

A London based filmmaker of a Jewish-Ukrainian origin. Since early years, having no idea that I would tie my life with filmmaking I liked to stage dance or little drama performances with my friends or cousins and perform them in front of our parents. Later, as a teenager, I discovered my passion for photography. First of all I viewed it as an art and a mean through which I could create something incredibly personal, capture anything that fascinated me. It was giving me an opportunity to experiment and play with reality and through pictures present it in a completely surreal way. Filmmaking I've always regarded as a very similar, but much more powerful art.

As I was growing up in a country where filmmaking industry is very poorly developed and financed, I thought that creating films could only be a dream for me. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a try and apply on the directing programme in one of the few Ukrainian film universities. I was 17 years old, straight after high school. Before even starting the interview I heard from the interviewer that he was unlikely to give me a place on the course as I was female and very young. Needless to say that I wasn't accepted. Those words deeply hurt and were a serious blow for my hope of being a filmmaker. I was working on several reality-shows on Ukrainian TV and while enjoying the idea of being involved in an industry creating video content it was very different from what I really wanted to do.

I greatly enjoy finally being fully immersed in filmmaking now. However, I still find it extremely difficult to get opportunities to make experimental films. I hope that there will be time when both filmmakers and audiences are more open and acceptant of those.
