Grigorij Richters founded Films United in New York in 2009. The company’s mission is to unite the world through film by creating a community of talented individuals from all filmmaking disciplines, from writers to editors, actors to camera operators. Films United provides a platform for people to develop their craft, learn from their peers and gain practical experience on film sets, and has been integral to all of my projects.
