Nina Velnić

I was born in Zagreb in 1980. Since graduating Editing from the Academy of Dramatic Art, I’ve been working on a number of TV series, both documentary and fiction. I have also edited several award winning shorts (fiction and documentary) and worked as assistant editor on four international and Croatian features. I love the challenge of editing various film forms and genres. The best part of my job is the chance to establish strong professional and personal relations in the process of filmmaking. And then work with my friends on a new project
