Sinan Germirli (Turkey/USA)

Sinan Germirli was born in Istanbul, Turkey. He moved to the United States in 2001 and enrolled in the film program at University of Colorado at Boulder under his dear professors Ernesto R. Acevedo-Muñoz, Jerry Aronson and Phil Solomon. He graduated in 2005 and moved to Los Angeles shortly after. He worked as an assistant, an assistant manager, and ultimately as a manager until 2013. He then worked as an independent producer and was one of the executive producers of Rod Blackhurst’s Here Alone, which won the Audience Award at Tribeca Film Festival in 2016. Having established his company Particular Vision in 2018 and received his US citizenship in 2019, he continues to write, direct and produce under his own banner on both sides of the Atlantic. His latest project, Radical Empathy, is a short, faux documentary about three characters talking about the last day of their lives, while their bodies gradually take the shape and circumstances of their individual deaths. Sinan divides his time between Istanbul and Los Angeles.
