Alina Polichuk is a freelance director and screenwriter for more than 11 years.


She graduated from one of the most prestigious theatrical universities in Russia as a drama director. This strongly influenced the development of her film directing style, especially her ability to evoke powerful and convincing performances from actors. This style is apparent in all of her work, and indeed the actors in her films play! Her extensive experience in the Russian film industry has helped Alina develop a vivid and unique cinematic style of visual storytelling, as well.


Alina's 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.
