Rahul Das

  • Discipline:Director, Editor
  • Program Year:Project Involve 2008


Rahul Das’ films celebrate the underdog’s quest for identity, love, and acceptance in a society from which they feel alienated.

Das received his Masters Degree in Film Directing from the California Institute of the Arts. He is a recipient of numerous grants from Columbia University, Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts & Sciences, Panavision, and Kodak. His films have also been screened in several noted film festivals worldwide including Toronto, Sarasota, Kyoto, UNESCO, New York, Los Angeles, and South America.

Das is currently working on a few projects, one of which is a MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fight film set in the violent streets of Los Angeles. The story explores the themes of honor, rage, greed, and temptation that drive street fighters to battle as modern day gladiators.

Das currently lives in Los Angeles and is actively involved in the film, music and art communities. Thankful for the opportunities he has been blessed with, one of his main goals is to set up an educational foundation for troubled youth. He loves working out at the gym, exploring the city, enjoys dining, cooking, barbeques on the beach, and meeting new people. He says he is not a workaholic, though many disagree. However, there is nothing wrong with a man enjoying his work after all.

Das is also an accomplished editor and works for major television networks.
