We present you Slava Doycheva: Director

We know Slava Doycheva as the little girl from the film by Ivan Cherkelov and Vasil Zhivkov "The Inverted Christmas Tree". In 2006, she played the role of the pregnant teenager Rasha, while she was still a non-professional actor, and today she is boldly going to the movies. After graduating in directing in London, Slava not only makes her own projects, but also organizes a number of events related to film screenings, such as her film being screened at Blok Kino, and for two years being one of the organizers of the Sofia Pride Film Fest.

He fell in love with cinema when he came across the photos of "The Inverted Christmas Tree". Everything happens by accident, but from the first moment he feels something magical, intimate… And so far he continues to try to capture this magic. Slava Doycheva was also Ralitsa Petrova's assistant in the film "Godless", she prefers to live and work in Bulgaria and so after finishing her education in London, she is here again.

"First of all, I am a director, a storyteller. And my stories are here. My characters are here, as well as my heart. Even when I was shooting in London during my studies, my characters were Bulgarians, immigrants… I can I speak best of what I know best. "
