Dina Burlis,




Hi! I am a documentary director and producer with a decade-long history in Russian banking:)


Since making the career-switch I have worked on various films in Los Angeles and Moscow. Exploring movie-making I discovered my true passion - to make films which empower women and tell inspirational true stories about women making their dreams come true.


In 2019 I completed my MFA in Film and TV Production at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, finishing my first feature documentary JOY WOMACK: THE WHITE SWAN and in production of a feature documentary BREAKING BOUNDARIES.
