I love films and have been following festivals on the island of Brač for several years. This year I liked the Postira Seaside Film Festival, where the audience could vote for films every day. I am very interested in thinking about film and its different layers.
When I watch films, I forget all my chores and worries. I especially like going to the cinema because I can watch films in silence there. I am looking forward to meeting the festival organizers and other jury members, as well as to discussing the films after watching them.
I like to watch films, series and anime. I am very interested in filming and directing films, so I make short films with my sister and friends. In fourth grade, I turned a reading assignment into a short film and it was screened at Tuškanac Cinema.
I play volleyball and do puppetry. I am fluent in English and learning Japanese. I am interested in singing, dancing, acting and art. As for music, I listen to pop, rock, punk and anything I like.
I’m starting sixth grade soon. I also go to music school, attend the ZKM drama group, and I plan to enroll in the film workshop for children at the Blank film association because I am very interested in films and filming.
