Diana Vidrașcu (1987, Romania) is a filmmaker based in Paris, France. Working with film, photography and installation, Diana Vidrascu questions the narrative devices of cinema by challenging the limits of the narrative discourse and codes of the film genres. Her films reveal a meditation on the visual language. The storytelling displays interruptions in the logic flow of events, creating parallels with the fragility of memory and the personal perception of time.

She studied Cinematography at the National Film Academy in Bucharest, then continued to work mainly as a director of photography on fiction and documentary projects. For the past 10 years she’s been shooting projects internationally for film directors and contemporary artists such as: Ulla von Brandenburg, Louis Henderson, Emilija Skarnulyte, Julien Crépieux, Peter Snowdon, among others.

She debuted as a director in 2017 and her films screened in festivals such as: Locarno Film Festival, Berlinale Forum Expanded, IFFR International Film Festival Rotterdam, BFI London Film Festival Experimenta, Côté Court Pantin, Camera Obscura San Francisco, BIEFF Experimental Film Festival Bucharest, etc.
