Aurelia Maria Popescu
Hello! My name is Aurelia Maria Popescu and I live in the city of Bucharest and I'm a student in the 11th grade at National College "Spiru Haret". I have been in the Booktrailer jury since 2020. I'm a very passionate theatre & movie kid, sew cosplays and am an actual Youtube editor (I use Premiere and After Effects mostly)! I love expressing myself through many arts including film, theatre, music and writing. Oh, have I mentioned that I also publish movie reviews? :)
She was born in Karlovac and studied English and Croatian language and literature at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka. At the moment, she is working as a teacher in three high schools in Karlovac County. She is teaching English language in Srednja škola Slunj and Croatian language in Tehnička škola Karlovac. In Gimnazija Karlovac, she is teaching an elective class about film studies and leading school’s photo group and video group. Both groups consist of creative and talented students who make films and take photos for the school’s purposes, but also for other projects, festivals, and international events.
I’m Wojciech and I’m 17 years old. I’m an acolyte in my parish. What is more, I do love all sports, nevertheless my favourite one is football. I like volleyball, floorball and rollerblading too. I am a really imaginative person and my hobby is making DIY things, especially from paper, and cooking. Reading books is so absorbing for me. As far as I’m concerned, being kind to people is the most precious thing in our life and we should share it in every single way. I am familiar with making films as I took part in Booktrailer Film Festival in 2022. Moreover, when I was younger I used to make videos on YouTube. Last year I took part in the English poetry elocutionary competition in which I declaimed poems of Edgar Allan Poe “A dream within a Dream” and Elizabeth Bishop’s “One art”.
