Alessandro Cassigoli (born in Florence, Italy 1976)
When I was 20, I moved to Rome where I attended film school “Professione Cinema” and started to work as assistant director for many Italian films and popular TV series.
After seven years of working on other people’s sets, I felt ready to embark on my own projects. Together with the Italian-Israeli director Dalia Castel, I made my first two documentaries: “In the Bubble” (2003) and “Good Times”(2004) that won awards in 15 different International Film Festivals including Leipzig Dok Festival, Full Frame and Punto de Vista.
In 2005 I attended the Berlinale Talent Campus and then moved to Berlin (Germany) after winning the Nipkow Programm Fellowship, a scholarship for media professionals.
Since 2007 I have directed 7 documentaries for the program 360º GEO that airs on “ARTE” and its produced by Medienkontor Gmbh.
Today I work both on commissioned projects for television an creative documentaries as “La Deustche Vita” and my new feature documentary “Following Casey”.
