Miroslav Savić was born in 1986, in Loznica (Serbia). He graduated in 2013 from the Academy of Arts in Nis as an actor (BFA in Acting, under the mentorship of prof. Irfan Mensur). He continued his studies at Belgrade Faculty of Dramatic Arts and obtained his MFA in Film and TV Directing in 2015. So far he wrote and directed several short fiction movies (Waiting for Bordeaux (10min; 2013); A Trip to the Sea (32min; 2014); To Kuyumba (22min; 2016)), and several music and promotional videos (No signal (8min; 2015)).

His movies tell stories about ordinary people and their everyday problems, while picturing and opening universal questions of friendship, growing up and showing love. In order to build vivid, realistic characters he gives actors much leeway, which, together with using integral narrative and still shots, reflects the influence of his background in acting and directing in theatre.
