YOUTH JURY

Gergana MartinovaGERGANA MARTINOVA (Bulgaria)
Hello! I am Gergana Martinova, 23 years old. I have been watching movies since I was very young and I like to talk and think about them. In 2019. I was given the opportunity to venture into the magic of the arts. I started my education at NATFA in the specialty “Theatre Studies and Theater Management”. Since then to this day I have been moving theater and cinema forward and up, hand in hand. Because I like both of them a hell of a lot.


Selin Arif SELIN ARIF (Bulgaria)
Hello! My name is Selin Arif and I am a first year student at the New Bulgarian University. a My major is Bulgarian Philology. I have been expressing myself through art ever since I was a child. It began with writing poetry, then as a part of musical and theatrical formation. I have a strong passion for film art due to its ability to fill the emotional emptiness in our souls.

Boris TrushanovBORIS TRUSHANOV (Bulgaria)
Hey! My name is Boris Trushanov and I am twenty years old. I am studying Bulgarian philology at New Bulgarian University. Apart from the literature I study, cinema is the biggest passion of my life. I even can say that cinema is the love of my life. When I was a little boy and my parents took me to the movie theatre for the very first time, I realized that movies are an escape from the real world that everyone should take advantage of.
