Gyulyara is an award-winning Azeri director who has completed her Master's Degree at the Met Film School in London. Gyulyara's first amateur short film gained more than 1 million viewers on youtube in 2011, the second amateur film won the "Best Director" nomination at 24h film competition. Since then she started to be passionate about filmmaking.

      Her first professionally made film "Trust Me" (devoted to victims at terror attacks in Paris in 2015), has been screened across various film festivals in London, Sydney, Moscow. At British Independent Film Festival 2017 she was the only one nominated for "Best Director" alongside feature film directors. And at Cinegate Aurora Film Festival in Moscow she recently won the "Best Director" award.

     The latest film is "Escort", which is currently on a festival journey (fingers crossed), meanwhile, she is in the pre-production of her first feature film about women's rights in Muslim countries.
