Emir Fils-Aime is a Director-Cinematographer, based in New York.

A curious mind, Emir is fascinated by the complexities of human existence and the ways in which the experiences of individuals intertwine with one another. From working in an emergency room to teaching middle school kids how to debate- he brings a diverse set of experiences into crafting stories. For this self-taught filmmaker, making films is really about "connecting the dots" while "playing with light".

Emir's first 360/virtual reality short film was recently installed at several spaces/events in NYC and is currently on the festival circuit. Most recently, he participated in a summer intensive VR program at The School of Machines, Making, & Make-Believe in Berlin, Germany. While there, he built and exhibited a sound-based, narrative VR experience with Unity3D. 

Emir holds a Bachelor's degree from CUNY Queens College and is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Integrated Digital Media at New York University.
