Victor Shamirov (1966, Rostov-on-Don) studied at the department of applied mathematics, the faculty of mechanics and mathematics of the Rostov University.

He worked as a loader, laboratory assistant, staged productions and writer at a youth theatre. He joined the Rostov theatre studio “Epos”. In 1992 he entered GITIS (class of M.Zakharov). In 2006 debuted as film director with the comedy Savages. His second work Exercises in the Beautiful (2011) won the award for the best screenplay at the “Kinotavr” festival. The Game of Truth is his fourth feature.
