Svetlana Cvetko


Director / Director of Photography

Variety once called Svetlana Cvetko a “live wire” and with good reason! Svetlana brings a boundless energy and lightness to every set.

She is acclaimed for her cinematography on high-end documentaries, including OSCAR® Winner Inside Job, contributed to OSCAR® Winner O.J.: Made In America, OSCAR® Nominated Facing Fear,  Red Army which premiered in Cannes Film Festival Official Selection, and Inequality for All, a Sundance Special Jury Prize winner. As well as the narrative features (Untitled), starring Adam Goldberg, and The Architect starring Eric

McCormack and Parker Posey (2017), both executive produced by Lars Ulrich of Metallica.

As a Director/DP, her voice has been acknowledged by the film industry with her most recent short documentary Yours Sincerely, Lois Weber winning Best Documentary at LA Shorts Festival in August, and her previous short documentary being  awarded the Grand Prix du Public at Films de Femmes. With a passion for creativity and performance, Svetlana effortlessly makes every image cinematic – whether in a prison in California, or a candy shop in India – she sees the world from a unique perspective.
