Mila Turajlic is a documentary filmmaker from Belgrade, Serbia, whose first film “Cinema Komunisto” premiered at IDFA and the Tribeca Film Festival, and went on to win 15 awards including the top prize at the Chicago Int’l Film Festival in 2011, and the FOCAL Award for Creative Use of Archival Footage. Her film “The Other Side of Everything”, a co-production with France (Survivance) and HBO Europe, was awarded support by the prestigious Aide aux cinémas du monde, EURIMAGES and Doha Film Institute, premiered at the 2017 Toronto Int’l Film Festival, and won IDFA Award for Best Feature-Length Documentary. After obtaining a degree in politics and international relations at the London School of Economics, Mila left her activities in student debate and activism in the belief that art would always be more subversive than politics. She specialized in documentary filmmaking at La Fémis in Paris and gained experience on series for Discovery and ARTE, as well as fiction films (“Apocalypto” dir. Mel Gibson, “Brothers Bloom” dir. Rian Johnson). She is an alumni of EURODOC, Berlin Talent Campus, Discovery Campus, and teaches at Archidoc and the Balkan Documentary Center. Mila has produced the “Magnificent 7 Festival of European Documentary Films” in Belgrade since 2005, and is a founder and first president of DokSerbia, the association of Serbian documentary filmmakers.
