Kateryna is a Ukraine-born and London-bred documentary filmmaker. Infinitely fascinated by people, her films centre on stories of community, womanhood, migration and the cross-pollination of cultures.
She is a Papaya Young Directors 2021 finalist and has directed films for women’s NGOs including Camera Femina and Latin American Women’s Aid. Her short film, Strange Signs, screened at London’s Genesis cinema as part of EFN Short Film Festival’s curated programme, ‘Disability on Screen’, and she contributed a commissioned short to Satellite Films’ collective artists’ film, ‘H is for Hostile Environment’.
Kateryna has also produced films for the arts & charity sectors, for clients including Glasgow Women's Library, BookTrust and St. Mungo's. As an emerging curator, she has programmed films for the Barbican's New East Cinema strand, and an online film season, ‘Feast from the East’, for the Independent Cinema Office's Cinema of Ideas. As a writer, Kateryna has written for HuffPost, The Vinyl Factory and DATEAGLE ART.
