Liliya A Anisimova

Liliya developed a strong interest in journalism in early childhood, having the first experience of “publishing” in a magazine at the age of 5. Her ardor gradually turned into her profession. She honed her skills in the Faculty of Journalism department at Moscow State University, then worked as a news anchor for a local Moscow TV station and later as a presenter for international documentary channel Russian Travel Guide. It was her last job that helped her discover the incredibly fathomless world of documentaries. Now she is a student of MFA Soc Doc and hopes to further develop her storytelling and filmmaking skills.
