Boris Mitic


Boris Mitić lived on a few continents, worked for few years for a few global media, understood a few things and dedicated the rest of his life to creative parenting, creative football and creative documentaries: a Gypsy Mad Max recycling saga, a claustrophobic tragicomedy of the absurd, a satirical documentary fairy tale, a feelgood parable about Nothing, a one-shot timburtonesque elegy of childhood.

His films range from no budget to megalomaniac productions with global celebrities. They were shown on 20+ TV channels and over 300 festivals around the world, with translations in 38 languages, incl. Esperanto & Latin. Boris has no film background, but he lectures and mentors on atypical documentary filmmaking worldwide, through his unique blend of caricatures, infographics and realpolitik.

He also plays blitz-chess for money, which he then spends on breakfast.
