Vanya studied theatre and visual arts from an early age. She began formal theatre training at 15 with Polina Klimovitskaya and on went on to train in performance at NYU's Tisch School. She soon changed her attention to directing, completing her degree at McGill University in English/Theatre with first class honours. After spending a number of years living in Europe, where she created several theatre productions, she returned to Montreal in order to complete a master's degree in theatre directing with an FRSC award for excellence. She soon dove into filmmaking and completed MONTREAL STORIES, three short films that take place throughout the 20th century. She produced the final one, set in 1944, with her newly established production company time's thievish progress to eternity FILMS. While attending the Canadian Film Centre’s Directors’ Lab she completed IMPOSSIBLE starring Tyler Hynes and Charlotte Le Bon which premiered at the prestigious Cinéma du Québec à Paris. She wrote, directed and produced her short film, AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL and more recently her first feature film WOMAN IN CAR. both which star Hélène Joy. She is presently developing two feature length scripts.

manifesto

  • We are a small, very small, film production company.
  • We make independent films. What is a dependent film?
  • We like RAW, RAW, RAW films, that are beautiful.
  • We believe that a STORY is worth a 1000 facts.
  • We believe in perfecting details when producing our films. We believe that fonts and posters and websites are important too.
  • We live for: Ozu, Buster Keaton, Bergman & Anna Magnani. Dickinson, Woolf & Akhmatova. Rembrandt & Schiele. Orlando Gibbons & Arvo Part. Birch charcoal & cotton paper.
  • We think that cutting edge films can be full of humanity.
  • We want to tell stories about us, you and them.
  • We are in a white room, in our little corner of the planet, but trying to reach out as far as we can.
  • We are dreamers, but you don’t have to be.
  • We believe in working with people who like what we like but who take the box, flip it upside down, turn it inside out and then throw it away to build a sphere.
  • We believe filmmaking is a way of life, not an industry.
  • We like sleeping on all our sets - in our dreams they tell us how to shoot them.
  • We think that 50mm is indeed the perfect lens, but we’ll use the others too so that they don’t feel left out.
  • We want our films to touch various parts of you and not leave you as soon as they’re done.
  • We like little people because they are the future. We like wrinkled people because they are the past.
  • We believe that it doesn’t get any better than Shakespeare but we’re happy to live in his shadow.
  • We hope to make films that keep time from slipping away so we don’t have to be so scared in the dead of night.

love, thievish FILMS
