Early life and education

At the age of 10, she began to take an interest in the world of cinema and theatre by taking part in local film productions and theatre plays where she had the opportunity to have roles and a first introduction to scriptwriting. These experiences then led her, at the age of 18, to enroll at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, allowing her to subsequently land roles in productions, some of which were directed by Shane Black or Mike Figgis. She then moved to Paris.

Eva Vik is a polyglot, she speaks English, French, Czech, Italian, and Polish.


In 2017, Eva Vik moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a screenwriter and director and made her first short film called Sound of Sun starring Sean Penn and Suki Waterhouse.

Several other short films followed, including: Carte Blanche with Dylan Sprouse, Suki Waterhouse, and Jack Kilmer who won the Audience Award at the Mammoth Film Festival in 2019 and a Breakout Director Award at the Hollywood Film Festival in 2020. And Maestro, with Clara McGregor and Karel Dobrý, which awarded her the Best Director Award and the Grand Jury Prize at the Independent Shorts Awards in 2021.

In 2022 and 2023, Eva Vik wrote and directed two science fiction works: Serpentine featuring Barbara Palvin, Luke Brandon Field, and Soo Joo Park, which earned her a Premiere screening at the Tribeca Festival, a nomination for the Tribeca X Award and the award for best genre short film at the Mammoth Film Festival. And Raven, released by Vogue magazine which was awarded at the HollyShorts Oscar-Qualifying Film Festival in 2022.

Eva Vik directed two projects in collaboration with Bulgari, Serpentine, a short film starring Barbara Palvin, and a Bulgari Omnia campaign starring Cailee Spaeny who was awarded the Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival (2023).

Personal life

Eva Vik announced, in an interview with LA Weekly in 2023, that she would henceforth bear the maiden name Vik of her maternal grandmother. Indeed, she declared that she no longer wanted to perpetuate the patronymic patriarchal tradition and give the strong women of her family the place they deserve.

Eva Vik is also, apart from her film activity, a philanthropist, committed to the protection of women and children who are victims of domestic violence all over the world through the White Ribbon Campaign.
