About Me

Intro

I'm Rahul, a filmmaker and writer born and brought up in the small, industrial town on Kanpur. Storytelling came to me from a combination of my childhood memories as well as strange, surreal adulthood experiences. I spent 10 years of my life with my grandparents as well as 10 years with my mother and step-father in Mumbai. Family-life and relationships intrigue me and so do the issues around the world that blend seamlessly with them.  

I prefer to hold a mirror to society rather than break it.

 

My short film that i directed at the age of 19 titled Story of a Lonely Goldfish starring the famous Shishir Sharma, went on to receive several nominations including South Asian International Film Festival (2015) (on the BFI Travel Grant List), Children's Film Festival Seattle (2016) and Torrecinos Film Festival (2017). 

At 21, I moved to London, United Kingdom and enrolled to study at the prestigious London Film School where I recently finished my graduation film Une Paire de Jumelles (2019) which if an official selection for Alexandria Film Festival (2019), Manchester International Short & Animation Film Festival (2020),  FIDEC Tetouan (2019), Euroshorts International Film Festival (2019) amongst many others. 

 

Currently in post-production, my upcoming documentary Three Losses (2019) is a cultural cumulations of my experiences in Europe and India as well as those whom I have met. 

 

In my free time, I like to make 'vegan chai' and munch on some gluten-free biscuits. I take a keen interest in travelling and photography and love to make new friends (not just to shoot their faces, I promise!) *pun intended*
