BIRCAN BIROL

Bircan is a documentary filmmaker based between Scotland and Turkey.

Starting at university, she has been filming journalistic documentaries and covering news about human rights issues back in Turkey. After she moved to Scotland, she fell in love with creative documentaries and multimedia storytelling.

Bircan directed her first short creative documentary 'My name is Anik' with the Scottish Documentary Institute as part of their 'Bridging the Gap '19 program. The film has been shortlisted in several festivals and won a ‘Best Scottish Production’ award. It has been recently listed as one of the 10 Great Scottish Short Films from GSFF 2020 in Skinny magazine.

She is currently developing her first feature documentary 'Your Honour' and working on other multimedia projects. As well as documentaries, she likes making dance and music videos.

Her camera still tends to zoom in on compelling human stories, alternative communities, and subcultures.
