About Ganna Gnatenko-Shabaldina

As a director I made a short film (premiered in France at the Lille Film Festival 2022) and a couple of teasers for feature films. Ready to work on projects of varying complexity as a director, and 1AD.

I've been working in film production for 18 years, a lot of experience as a 1AD (since 2010), mostly working with feature films and TV series.

I am originally from Ukraine, but I have been based in Warsaw since the beginning of the war. Ready to consider offers from other cities and countries.

Filmmaking is not only a job, but also a lifestyle, which is hard to trade for anything else.
