Ioana Bulai


I am a ‘ready to walk the extra mile’ filmmaker, specialising in editing and colour grading. I am keen to explore new creative horizons whilst showing professionalism in my work and in the execution of my tasks.

I like challenging myself and taking the opportunity to learn from new experiences. My aim is to work in the film and television industry and to develop professionally.

Achievements & Experience

I recently finished a documentary exclusively made of archive exploring the concept of masculinity in women fighting for power in Romania's male-privileged society. In addition to that, I am currently an ambassador for the 16 Days 16 Films feminist campaign and film festival, in which I was a 2018 finalist with my short experimental ''Cracked''.

My previous work comprises a range of different experiences, which makes me highly adaptable to various situations and environments. From being a runner to events and festivals such as BBC Digital Cities Bristol and RTS West of England, a video content creator for NewsThump, a commercials editor and colourist for Off The Record and The Soil Association and an in-store demonstrator at Canon, the tasks I have carried out strengthened my sense of responsibility and organization, along further developing my social and problem solving skills.
