Diana Vidrașcu (1987, Romania) is a filmmaker based in Paris, France. She studied Cinematography at the National Film Academy in Bucharest, then continued to work mainly as a director of photography on fiction and documentary films. She debuted as a director in 2017 and her films screened in festivals such as IFFR International Film Festival Rotterdam, Berlinale Forum Expanded, BFI London Film Festival Experimenta, Côté Court Pantin, Camera Obscura San Francisco, BIEFF Experimental Film Festival Bucharest, etc.

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. With a strong background in cinematography, 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.

For the past 10 years she’s been working internationally as a director of photography for film directors and contemporary artists such as: Ulla von Brandenburg, Louis Henderson, Emilija Skarnulyte, Julien Crépieux, Peter Snowdon, among others.
