G. Anthony Svatek makes 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, and the way people’s understanding of nature is informed by our increasingly technological and urban lives. He is based in New York City.
Amongst others, his work has been shown at the New York Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, and DOCNYC, and has been published by Harper’s Magazine. He’s received grants and support from the New York State Council on the Arts and the Austrian Cultural Forum New York, and is the recipient of the New Visions Golden Gate Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival.
Anthony works professional under the company Kulturfolger Productions, which includes projects for BBC World News and the New York State Parks Department. He has staffed seasonally at the Flaherty Film Seminar, The Climate Museum, American Museum of Natural History, and served on the board of the Film-Makers’ Cooperative / New American Cinema Group.
