They discussed how they got to where they are today, their favourite parts of the job and the struggles they have overcome so far.
The night began with Director of Photography Diana Olifirova talking about her work on Short Films and how she has adapted in many challenging situations, such as language barriers and creating kit on a job to get the result she wanted. Diana also spoke about one of her favourite shorts she has worked on, comedy Not Today (Davay Ne Syogodni), which is about an elderly couple planning to die. Not Today also was Winner of the Best Short Film award at Trieste Film Festival.
