Greta Griniute is a freelance writer/director with a passion for comedy. Born in Lithuania, Greta spread her wings after high school when she moved to the UK to study physical theatre and acting. Greta’s passion for film and theatre soon led her to Italy where she began her career as an assistant director with acclaimed theatre company MOTUS. Greta’s filmmaking career first took off when she attended the international film festival Cinemademare, writing and directing a handful of her own shorts as well as assisting on many others. After receiving a scholarship to study in Los Angeles, Greta went on to write and direct her best known short film ‘Tickle My Pickle’ which has screened at festivals worldwide including LA Shorts as well as picking up a Best Director nomination at ARFF Berlin. Most recently Greta has completed both an MA in Directing Fiction at Goldsmiths University of London as well as a filmmaking workshop at Prague Film School. Both the shorts she made during this time are currently screening at festivals, most notably ‘Rice & Bread’ which was selected to premiere at the London Short Film Festival 2020. Greta is currently in pre-production with her latest short film ‘The First Sunday After the First Full Moon’ while continuing to develop further ideas for features.
