Eugen hails from Moldova, moving to Germany when he was 5. As a kid he had a fascination for filmmaking, finding his feet using his parents dv camera and shooting action flicks with his buddies.
In his 20’s he attended the prestigious Filmakademie Baden-Wurttemberg in Stuttgart, cutting his teeth making short films and spec commercials. He has a love for the unexpected and the unusual, particularly small town America, where his recent short ‘The Boy Who Couldn’t Feel Pain’ was set. This led him to a YDA win alongside winning Gold for 'New Talent in Directing' at Ciclope this year.
Eugen’s films position him perfectly within the Academy roster of talent with creative, emotionally charged and highly cinematic work, crafted to an exceptionally high standard.
