About Paula

I am a Romanian freelance filmmaker interested in documentary film, social movements and new media. I am both a film director and a director of photography. I have a degree in Cinematography, Photography and Media and a master in Dynamic Image. During my studies I’ve gained a multicultural academic background by having many scholarship experience in South Korea, Turkey and Spain and a Special Mention for Academic Excellence by the League of Romanian Students Abroad.

Besides the academic life, I've had many highly-improving experiences, as resident artist in France, Sweden and Italy and as participations at workshops around the world, like: Aristoteles (RO), Storydoc (GR-DE), Nisimasa Experimental Film (RO), Interaction Film Camp (RS), LongocampoDOX (RO), Transylvania Talent Lab (RO) etc.

My last documentary film As You Like It was officially selected in over 40 festivals around the world festivals like: Karlovy-Vary, DOK Leipzig, TIFF Romania, documentART, Cannes Short Film Corner etc, winning awards like: best image, best social documentary, public prize and best short film.

I worked as a multimedia coordinator (4 Culture Association -RO), film editor (Fantascope Films, Little Stars Film School, The Ark, The Japanese Quince Tree), cinematographer (As You Like It, The Manakia Brothers and Resolutions 2014) and maybe the most important, as a director (films: 4GeneRelation Women, As You Like It, Connection Lost etc; video-installations: Mirador, Skype Virtual Installation and Site Under Construction - collaboration).
I am still active in all the fields listed above, with a focus on cinematography and I develop projects beyond geographic or mind borders.
