Richard Kwietniowski

I have made the internationally distributed feature films Love and Death on Long Island (starring John Hurt and Jason Priestley) and Owning Mahowny (starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Hurt and Minnie Driver), in addition to work for British TV and a number of acclaimed short films, including Alfalfa and Flames of Passion.

My work has received awards from the Cannes Film Festival, Berlin Film Festival, New York Film Critics Circle, US National Board of Review, Royal Television Society, D&AD (Gold and Best of Year), and BAFTA. 

I teach directing, screenwriting and acting-to-camera at a range of institutions in the UK and beyond and I’ve contributed to many European initiatives in feature-film development. I am a Senior Lecturer at London Film School, where I co-supervises all graduation films. 

My name is easier to pronounce than it looks: Kfee-et-nee-ov-skee.
