Carolina Markowicz wrote and co-directed the short film, “Tatuapé Mahal Tower”, one of the most award-winning Brazilian films of 2014, which had its global debut at the prestigious TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival), and was considered by the curators themselves as one of the “15 must-see of TIFF 2014”. The film is continuing its global run as part of the official selection of more than 150 festivals around the world, including Warsaw, Huelva, Atlanta, Cleveland, Florida, Havana, Santa Maria da Feira, Hong Kong, Tampere, Festival do Rio, Toulouse, Edinburgh, and many others, and has been received numerous awards, including 15 for best film.
She was singled out by Shane Smith, curator of the Toronto festival, on the Co-Create website as one of the “5 filmmakers to watch”. Carolina had previously directed the short film, “69 – Luz Square”, shown in more than 20 countries, including at MoMa NY, and was the winner of Festival do Rio in 2008.
Her project, the film “Postponed”, features acclaimed actors Cesar Bordon (Wild Tales), Mirella Pascual (Whisky), and Monica Villa (Carancho) in its cast. In 2015, she was one of the ten young international filmmakers invited to participate in the TIFF Film Lab, with mentors Wim Wenders, Jim Stark, Christine Vauchon, and Malgozata Szumowska. And in April 2016, she was selected for Berlinale’s Talents Buenos Aires.
