Alexey Marfin is a director and filmmaker, interested in contemporary digital culture and new social interactions. He explores cinematic storytelling as a process of world-design: using fictional worlds as a lens with which to look at our own present-day realities.

Alexey has a professional background in visual effects, having worked extensively for the Sundance-award-winning directors’ collective Factory Fifteen – and an academic background in architecture – both of which contribute to his filmmaking style and vision.

Alexey teaches the MA Fiction & Entertainment film programme at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles, where his students explore speculative fiction through filmmaking and new media. Alexey has lectured worldwide, including the Royal College of Art, Princeton University, and UCLA.
