G. Anthony Svatek makes nonfiction films that examine humans’ relationship with natural and urban environments. Having grown up at the foot of the Austrian Alps, Anthony is deeply awed by the living world, landscapes, and the way people’s awareness of nature is changing through our increasingly techno-urban experiences.

Amongst other venues, his work has been shown at the New York Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, DOCNYC, Encuentros del Otro Cine, Athens International Film + Video Festival and Mono No Aware. He's received grants and support from the New York State Council on the Arts and the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.

Anthony collaborated with filmmaker Jessica Oreck at Myriapod Productions for several years and has staffed at the Flaherty International Film Seminar. He currently serves as board member at The Film-Makers' Cooperative / New American Cinema Group, freelances at BBC World, and has been a devoted volunteer at the American Museum of Natural History. 

Anthony works, creates and lives in New York City.
