A British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow, whose interests rest in the fields of transnational cinema, popular and festival film, online distribution, film audiences and music videos. Maya earned her BA in Film and Philosophy and MA in Film and Cultural Management. She explored selected transnational aspects of the Bulgarian film industry in her PhD thesis at the University of Southampton. Her research was funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council and attempts to highlight economic and cultural continuities across national contexts, challenging persistent stereotypes about the divide between the East and the West. As part of her British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at Oxford Brookes University, she is currently investigating shifting patterns in Bulgarian film consumption, positioned within global culture and economy.
