currently based in Moscow and Amsterdam
My name is Alina Polichuk and I’ve been a freelance director and screenwriter for more than 9 years.
I graduated from one of the most prestigious theatrical universities in Russia as a drama director. This strongly influenced the development of my film directing style, especially my ability to evoke powerful and convincing performances from my actors. This style is apparent in all of my work, and indeed the actors in my films play! My extensive experience in the Russian film industry has helped me develop a vivid and unique cinematic style of visual storytelling, as well.
My true passion is in comedy stories with subtle and intellectual humour, and solid narrative storytelling. Especially when it depends on strong acting.
Confident, responsible, with a great sense of truth and strong leadership skills. Tough as a man, deep feeling as a woman.
