He is the director and writer of “New Bronx”, that participates in the Fiction Category in Student Competition.
Pavel Pavlov, the director of Lea, was also with us talking about his film and his work that is concentrated on short movies, music videos and commercials. This time people from the audience felt more encouraged to ask more questions to them.
