Vlad Dorofte discovered film at the age of 5 in an environment powerfully
censored by the Romanian communist system during a period when access to
information and entertainment was very scarce.
During primary school when the communism had fallen, he would have
already fallen in love with photography and painting. Since he had little talent at
drawing and even less at painting he started playing with his father’s small
photo camera and soon he started to invest time and his little savings as a
schoolboy in his photo hobby.
It is during his high-school period that he began to discover the work of
great film directors and began to understand what filmmaking is about and the
stages it involves.
This fresh decision of becoming a filmmaker drove his actions for over a
decade of hard work and savings to help him pursue this yearning.
Though he worked on several small independent projects along this time, it
is year 2014 that marked his firm investment in this field.
He is now writing, directing, producing as well as writing film critique and
reviews for film festivals (TMFF Film Fest, BELIFF Film Fest). He is also a
film festival jury member (TMFF) and a film festival co-founder (BELIFF).
WON 1st PRIZE at an online photography contest in 2005 which had Dinu Lazar, a
famous Romanian photographer, as a main jury member
