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 lifestyles. 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. Anthony's latest short .TV 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.
He serves as a board member at The Film-Makers' Cooperative / New American Cinema Group, staffs seasonally at the Flaherty Film Seminar, produces at BBC World, and has been a devoted volunteer at the American Museum of Natural History. Anthony is a docent at The Climate Museum on New York City's Governors Island.
