Nadia Turincev



Nadia was born in 1970 in Moscow, USSR. She started going intensively to the movies at the age of 12 because she had madly fell in love with Andrei Konchalovsky. At the age of 16, she started working as a trainee on Nikita Mikhalkov’s "Dark Eyes" with Marcello Mastroianni. For several years, she worked as a set translator and dialogue coach on international co-productions. She then developed two feature films - one by Mikhail Kobakhidze, the other by late Alexander Kaïdanovsky - which were never completed. Mourning these projects and yearning to learn more about the field, she got involved in EU issues: after ACE – Ateliers du Cinéma Européen (European Film Studio) and Europa Cinemas, she was named General Secretary of the European Producers Club. Her wish to learn about film festivals got luckily fulfilled: she became member of the selection committee of Cannes Film Festival’s Directors Fortnight, among the ephemeral team of François Da Silva. She became the artistic director of the Moscow IFF between 2004 and 2006. In 2007, partnering up with Julie Gayet, she started her own production company, Rouge International. She has also been working as an expert for the EU program MEDIA Development since 2001.
