Kateryna is a Ukraine-born, London-bred documentary filmmaker.
Infinitely fascinated by people and their relationships to places, her films centre on migration, displacement, community, and the cross-pollination of cultures.
She is a shortlisted artist for the Arts Foundation Future Award (2024) for short documentary film, and a Papaya Young Directors finalist (2021). She has directed commissioned films for Al Jazeera and women's NGOs including Latin American Women’s Aid, and her films have screened at festivals UK-wide and internationally. Her next-to-no budget film The Curtain was selected for Tampere Film Festival, one of the largest short film festivals in Europe.
Kateryna has coordinated global shoots of refugee Olympians for the UN, and produced films for arts & charity sector clients including Glasgow Women's Library and St. Mungo's. She has programmed films for the Barbican and an online film season, Feast from the East, for the Independent Cinema Office. In 2023 she completed the Centre for Investigative Journalism's Lyra McKee scheme, and her writing has been published in HuffPost, The Vinyl Factory and Seville Film Festival.
