Director Biography - Sween Tharusha Fernando

I'm Sween Fernando, a young aspiring filmmaker based in Negombo, Sri Lanka. My deep love for the golden age of cinema inspires me to capture the essence and beauty of the films I've watched countless times. I started my own production company, "Kolam" that created the most beautiful and heartfelt imagery and stories. I am to study film directing at Deakin University in Melbourne by this February. My plan is to rebuild the film industry in Sri Lanka and bring Sri Lankan cinema to the world. Everything I write, film and capture, it's a love letter to cinema.
