Director Biography - Krystof Keshav

Krystof Keshav is an independent film maker based in Lisbon, Portugal. As an amateur actor, he found himself working as a figurante in films and adverts across Europe, or acting in short independent films, where he did not have a real say in the synopsis or the final script. When he approached Directors with his own synopsis or script, he found it extremely difficult to have his short film produced. So, falling back on previous courses in photography, film studies and 16mm Film-making, he boot-strapped and became an independent Director.
