Hey, Gilad here! I'm a Toronto-based independent filmmaker and screenwriter.
I have a bit of trouble providing any strict definition in terms of what my work is about, so instead, these are some questions that I hope to raise through my films: what gives us purpose? What drives us to act and behave the way we do? Are we ever truly capable of change? How do we reconcile an understanding of the world and other people with our own internal, flawed, subjective experience? Is this even possible?
Which, I know, all sounds rather lofty and hoity-toity, but I am passionate about bringing these difficult questions and themes into genre-defying filmmaking that is both thrilling and emotionally resonant.
My latest short, Penny and Ramin, is currently on the festival circuit and is having its Canadian premiere at Toronto Indie Film Festival on September 17th, 2022.
