Norika Sefa is a Kosovo born filmmaker. Her films are heterogeneous in style, merging fiction and documentary, pieces that create atmosphere rather than stick to a conventional narrative. Recently she made Kiss Me, Now (2020), along with Desde Arriba (2020), two hybrid documentaries. The last one was made under the guidance of Werner Herzog in Peruvian jungle. Looking for Venera (2021) is her first feature film and premiered at IFF Rotterdam, winning the special jury award in the Tiger competition. The invitations to give different masterclasses brought the filmmaker across a few festivals and several prestigious arts and cultural institutions, to talk about her perception in filmmaking and especially working in the small film industry, such as in
Kosovo. Norika is currently developing her next feature film set to be in Kosovo.
