She’s an alumni of Berlinale Talents 2014 and Talents Sarajevo 2012. She continued her training in Emerging Strategies in Film Distribution and Marketing in Berlin in 2012, where her previous studies in Computer Science, combined with her passion for filmmaking led her to understand the needs of the market and the fast and continuous change that can influence a marketing campaign and that is where her journey in film sales and distribution began.
