Lea Bloch

At the age of 16, filmmaking became an integral part of my life. At that time I played the lead role in a Swiss cinema film, spending a month on a film set and immediately knowing that that's where I belonged. Again and again I took part in smaller productions until I realized that I wanted to tell stories in my own way. Through various internships in the film business, including a short film distribution, as well as in film criticism at Swiss Television and my studies in communication and religious studies, my interest in many different topics was awakened. During my semester break in winter 2020 I produced my first own short documentary film «Holy Land» at the age of 24. I am currently working as a video journalist, improving my technical video skills and writing the concept for my next film project.
