Today we’d like to introduce you to Ava Ismaiylova, award-winning film producer and director.
Ava, please share your story with us.
I moved to Los Angeles from London, where I already worked as a producer, to challenge myself more. I went into directing and earned my first award for directing my short film “Petrichor.” I won the Best Drama Short at the Independent London Film Awards, Best Music Video at the Paris Music Video Underground Festival, and the award I am most proud of is the Best Female Producer under 30 by the Culture News (iHeart Radio).
Having a journalism background helps me tell the story, but this time in a visual manner. I am also very much into fashion, so I have my own signature in films.
When I came to Los Angeles I was introduced to the CEO of the film production company – Broken Cage Studio. I decided to try myself and sent them my short films. They decided to support a female filmmaker. Since then, we are the one. I’m proud to be a part of the Broken Cage Studio.
I am now in development for a number of feature films; I continue to do music video and commercials.
I am very privileged to be able to do what I always wanted and honored to be the part of the Entertainment Industry of the States.
