Director Biography - Alexander Kurilov

Born in 1985, in the Soviet Union, Alexander’s first encounter with film was through an improvised cable service set up by the neighbors. Growing up in a country with no cinemas and no film industry, every film he experienced had a huge impact. Over time, a heightened interest towards storytelling had developed and Alexander started practicing his screenwriting skills by reading the scripts to the famous films of the time. Through learning programming he became interested by the technical side of the visual experience. This would be the inception of his interest towards computer animation. After spending an exchange year at the St. Mark’s School of Texas, where he finally had a chance to make his first films and have a hands-on experience of the production process, Alexander founded his own production company. The company makes advertising films for clients from all over the world. The highlight of the company’s experience is a Grand Prize Trophy at a MOFILM festival, awarded to Alexander personally by non other than Terry Gilliam himself. In the mean time Alexander is developing several film projects. ‘In Exile’ is the very first one to get made and hopefully it will be a firm first step into the world of international film production.
