About Lili Krasteva

I was born in 1983 in Sofia, Bulgaria. After graduating, I went to Germany to study linguistics and media studies in Konstanz. A year later I moved to Mainz to study film and theatre studies.
During this time I gained first practical experience both in theatre and on set and decided to go to Berlin, where I studied Audiovisual Media (Camera) at the Beuth Hochschule für Technik.
I am a freelance camerawoman, photographer and gaffer.
