Research and Creative Interests
- visual storytelling
- Film Festival studies

- narrative video production
I’m a first-year M.A. student in The Media School. I received a dual B.A. in liberal arts and sciences from Bard College and St. Petersburg State University, Russia.
Before coming to IU I worked as a project coordinator at several international film festivals in Russia, including Andrey Tarkovsky International film festival and Documentary Film Festival Message to Man. I was also a writer for a student-run film journal covering the programs of international film festivals.
Recently, I’ve discovered that I’m interested in the ways fiction and non-fiction production techniques blur the boundaries between documentaries and narrative films.
