She works on documentary and narrative films, as well as ads and music videos. In 2014 Weronika shot Przemysław Wojcieszek’s experimental work HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY, two years after filming Grzegorz Zariczny’s THE WHISTLE, which won Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.

In 2016 three films shot by Weronika appeared on the screen: Zariczny’s WAVES, Zofia Kowalewska’s CLOSE TIES, which was shortlisted for an Oscar; and Łukasz Grzegorzek’s KAMPER. She also worked with Grzegorzek on his next two films, A COACH'S DAUGHTER and MY WONDERFUL LIFE, whose premiere is planned for the autumn of 2021.

She won the Golden Amber award at the 2021 Youth and Film festival for EVERYONE HAS A SUMMER, directed by Tomasz Jurkiewicz, as well as the Golden Tadpole at the 2009 Camerimage Festival for Marcin Maziarzewski’s short BAD LYRICS. In 2014 and 2018 Weronika won the Jan Machulski Independent Polish Cinema Prize.
