My name is Kalle Saarinen and I am a 21 year old independent filmmaker figuring out how to make movies. I have always loved the feeling of escapism and getting lost in the world of film. After watching, collecting and analyzing films for years I finally figured out what I want to do. 


I want to create the most captivating works of escapism for people to enjoy. Films have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and the only possible extension to my passion was to actually start creating them. Then, Captivated By Film was born. 

CBF has already become something I couldn't have even imagined a few years ago, and we will keep on creating for as long as we physically are able to in this life.

Join us on our journey to make the most captivating escapism possible.
