A storyteller's journey from dreams to films 

"The barriers around our hearts are deep and strong, protecting us from pain. We live in the past or in the future or in a dream." ("The God Who Won't Let Go" by Jesuit Fr. Peter van Breemen)

Welcome to my website FILMS BY GEORGIA. Here you will find fragments of my life's journey, thoughts, dreams, feelings and emotions wrapped into various writing formats and films, explorations of human nature psychic and of happenings along the way. Felt and lived in English and Romanian, the only spoken languages I know.

What does film and filmmakers mean for me. Film means the manifestation of the life force into the richest networks of bridges between mind, heart and soul. It is the materialization of inner worlds into the outer world and the allignment between the two realms. It is a filmmaker's mission to go through the portal of dreams incubation and to connect the dots. 

I learned to fall in love with limitations and with everything that apparently stands against, as I discovered the journey is far more fascinating when all there is it's just who you are. It feels like traveling the world by foot. It simply reveals its mysteries to you.

My story on short

I stepped on the pathway of cinematography in my early 40s after following the business and entrepreneurship script between my 20s and mid 30s, a spirit and character shaping story crowded with twists and turns, but mostly with appocaliptic episodes. Otherwise, I am Romanian filmmaker and I usually direct and produce the movies I write. I love doing the making-of and behind the scenes documentaries, and to map my trips from scripts to films, the evolution of a story from the first thought and word on paper to the last image on screen.

I have a BA in Economics, a MA in Accounting, a MFA in Film Production and an ongoing Ph.D. in Cinema and Media.

Cinema as Content Marketing Strategy. Brand Films.


Film is a problem solving strategy for brands. In the context of digital era and its algorithmic culture, my core interests (also my Ph.D theme) go around brand films storytelling, short and ultra short formats in general, multidisciplinary formats applicable cross-industrially that hold the power at low production budgets to speak the language of the algorithms, so they can fast match the brands with their core public. My mission is to highlight the necessity of film as marketing and business development strategy and the integration of film production budgets and film production departments as part of companies' structure. 

While I learn, I hope you will also learn. FILMS BY GEORGIA is the obvious choice of words as my name is Georgia Mihalcea. Not so smart from a SEO angle, as Google always returns results pages of Georgia states, but it is as it is.


I appreciate your interest in my work and I invite you to explore my website and to connect with me, if you resonate with my explorations.
