OKSANA MIRZOYAN is an Armenian-American artist focused on narrative filmmaking as a writer/director/producer. Mirzoyan's films have been shown and been awarded internationally at festivals such as Clermand-Ferrand (France), Camerimage (Poland), and Locarno (Switerzland). Her short '140 Drams' was an honoree of the Cinematographer's Guild of America, won Best Short Film at Izmir Film Festival, and was screened in Atom Egoyan's curated selection of 'Diaspora: Armenia' at the Fribourg International Film Festival (Switzerland).

Mirzoyan is based in Detroit, where she is a Kresge Arts Fellow. Her work has been commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAD), and the Detroit Institutes of Arts held a solo exhibition of her narrative films. She experiments in sculpture making, which has been shown at Wasserman Projects.

Mirzoyan ventures out of filmmaking to teach her process through master workshops and talks at educational institutions such as the University of Rochester in New York, the University of Michigan, and Tumo Creative Technology Center in Armenia. She is passionate about humanitarian efforts and co-founded ONEArmenia, a nonprofit organization that funds charitable and philanthropic projects in Armenia. During her time living in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabagh, she also collaborated with the US Embassy to Armenia, the Children of Armenia Fund, Halo Trust, and the IDeA Foundation from projects on education archeological research, de-mining efforts, civil society-building, and more.

Currently, she is working on her first feature, 'Abysm,' which explores the ongoing conflict in Nagorno-Karabagh in the South Caucasus. The film has won Locarno Film Festival's Open Doors Prize and support from Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Canada. In 2021 Mirzoyan was chosen as a Berlinale Talent at the International Berlin Film Festival for her new short documentary film 'The Hermit.'
