Writer Biography – Mary Hasavari

 

My name is Mary N. Hasavari. I’m a filmmaker with an
international background which includes Norway, Thailand, and
Iran. I explore themes rooted in identity and belonging. At the age of 16, I made my first short film, a documentary about Norwegian Black-metal kids. After graduating with a BA in marketing and an MFA from London Film School, my film Before Spring earned me five nominations at five different film festivals, among them, Oscar-qualifying Bogota Short Film Festival and I received Honorable Mentioning at The Isle of Wight International Film Festival. In 2018 I went through a shadow program at ABC Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recently, I received a Talent Development grant from The Norwegian Film Institute and my feature screenplay was in the final round of selection for the 2020 Sundance development track. I’m looking forward to creating groundbreaking films and series with likeminded people.
