Additionally, Stefan delves into the realm of dance documentaries, gaining acclaim for her film “The Truss Arch,” which earned her an IRIS nomination and the prestigious Best National Medium-Length Film award at both the Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal (RIDM) in 2021 and the Rendezvous Québec Cinéma in 2022. Her creative journey extends further through collaborations with the multimedia dance company Animals of Distinction, Petrikor Danse, and the Newton Moraes Dance Theatre.
