Darya Sidorova studies animation at the Film and TV Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava, Slovakia. Since childhood she enjoys combining different ideas and techniques in her artwork. Finding something magical in the real helps her to find inspiration for her films. Magic is everywhere, you just need to see it. Currently she develops her bachelor film thesis about growing up. The Girl Who Was Not Afraid of the Bear is a natural follow-up of this theme.
CEE Animation is supported by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and co-funded by state funds and foundations and professional organisations from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
