Dave Krunal is an emerging independent filmmaker based in Melbourne, Australia. His passion for photography and writing inspired him to discover a unique voice in filmmaking. He has experimented with a diverse range of subjects in his short films since 2012. He often explores the dark side of the conventional regime and uses fear as a central emotion in his movies. His debut mystery thriller short film “Curious” without dialogues explored the negative spectrum of curiosity. The film was praised for its visual storytelling and mise en scène and won awards in Mexico, Barcelona, and India’s prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke International Film Festival. Dave later produced and directed several short films to hone his craft and filmmaking style. His Hindi short “Sunday” is a poetic narration about childhood nostalgia. “Waterbomb,” a 60-second short to raising global water shortage awareness, and “Love is not in the glass” to support gender equality. Dave Krunal’s latest buzz is Chakr (The Cycle), three awards winner Gujarati time-travel thriller based on his domestic violence witness incident. He is currently developing a story for his first indie thriller feature film project.
