Maria Fedorchenko

Student Jury

Born in 2003 in Kyiv. She will graduate from school in 2020, having been home-schooled for the past several months because of her busy filming schedule. In January 2020 she starred in Kateryna Gornostai’s feature film The Floor Is Lava; during October-December 2019, she participated in the project’s creative laboratory. A year and a half ago Maria suffered from clinical depression; this changed certain aspects of her worldview, but also made her a happier person now and became a turning point in her life. After graduation she intends to enrol at an artistic university. She is interested in theatre and cinema.
