Szilvia Ruszev is film editor, visual artist and scholar. Her professional work represents a comprehensive approach to independent filmmaking, with more than 30 films in many different formats to her credit. Her own artistic work relates to very personal moments, certain states of emotional solitude in relation to the Other, both in its particular and abstract notion. Her practice based research project on visualizing editing is seeking for non verbal ways to acquire sensual knowledge about montage.
Szilvia studied Hungarian and Bulgarian Literature and Linguistics and Filmtheorie at Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest/Hungary) and completed Diploma at the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf, where she worked as faculty member in the last six years. She worked with internationally acclaimed directors such as Peter Greenaway, Anders Østergaard and János Szász and for the short film Wagah she got the Film+ Award for best Film Editing.
