Cinema Distribution Azerbaijan

Samira Asgarova



I was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, the post-Soviet country in 1991. I received the bachelor degree in Telecommunications Engineering at Azerbaijan Technical University in 2014. After the graduation from University, fluent in Azerbaijani, English, Turkish and Russian, I started working for Azerbaijanfilm Film Studio as the production coordinator, set interpreter and subtitles translator of feature and documentary films. I’ve started working for ‘Cinema Distribution Azerbaijan’ company in the position of theatrical distributor since February 2018 and implemented the acquisition and distribution of Oscar-winner ‘Green Book’ by Peter Farrelly and other internationally acclaimed films such as ‘Dolor y Gloria’ by Pedro Almodóvar, ‘Loving Pablo’ by Fernando León de Aranoa, ‘En liberté!’ by Pierre Salvadori and Palme d'Or winner “Parasite”. I was selected to participate at BERLINALE TALENTS 2019 from over 3.400 applicants from 130 countries and was welcomed as a member of the Market Studio. Today ‘Cinema Distribution Azerbaijan’ is the leading film distribution company in Azerbaijan, working with films of independent film studios from all over the world.
