About

Sachin Dharwadker is a filmmaker from Madison, Wisconsin currently based in Los Angeles, California.

After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2016 as a Martin Scorsese Young Filmmakers Scholar, Sachin worked in the video department at Broadway.com for two years while writing scripts, developing film projects, and doing fellowships in his spare time. During this period, he was a Sundance Ignite fellow (for his short film Breathe In Breathe Out), a participant of the Sundance Episodic Lab and the New York Stage & Film Filmmakers’ Workshop (both for his miniseries pilot The Prince of Hyde Park), a grand prize winner of the Celebrate Equality NY Film Challenge, and a Richie Jackson Artist Fellow. In 2018, he relocated from New York to Los Angeles to pursue a career in television writing and feature directing.

As a filmmaker, Sachin focuses on humanistic stories that explore the moral questions of the modern world, and in particular how these questions apply to marginalized communities. His short film The Alternative explores the exploitation of a Latina immigrant by opportunistic forces; The Prince of Hyde Park is set in the racially charged world of high school basketball; his feature film script The Love Comes Slowly centers on the drama of a family who moves from India to Wisconsin. With stories like these, Sachin hopes to fashion a bold and diverse body of work that provokes thought and elicits deep emotional response.

When not creating or consuming motion pictures, Sachin enjoys reading, spending time with the people he loves, and supporting Liverpool Football Club.
