bio

Born in Katowice and graduated from Krzysztof Kieslowski Film School. Beata has been working on narrative, commercials, documentaries, and music videos. Being inspired by light and emotions, she’s always seeking a way to experiment with the image.

She has been working in Poland and worldwide, with filmmakers with many different cultural backgrounds.

She focuses on creating an individual language of colours, composition, and camera movement for every project. She pays particular attention to storytelling – there is no good picture without a good story behind.
She partners with directors, from the stage of script analysis, to translate their vision into images. She strongly believes in teamwork as a keystone of the creative process of film making.

Awarded for the best cinematography for “By Halves” at Moscow Shorts – International Film Festival and for “I Know” at International Watersprite Film Festival in the UK. Documentary “Miss Holocaust” got selected for the official competition for the best short film at the 67th Berlinale Film Festival.

Beata likes to spend time surrounded by nature on her time off the set. She likes scuba diving and skiing. When she gets back to the urban jungle she is learning to skateboard and meditation.
