Emir Fils-Aime is a Filmmaker, 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 him, making films is really about "connecting dots" while "playing with light".
Emir's 360 virtual reality short film, Peer, was recently installed in several spaces in New York City. This past summer, he participated in a VR residency 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 is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Integrated Digital Media at New York University.
