Festival Jury, 7th Berlin Revolution Film Festival

Marija Rodić

I am educated in literature and film. I prefer non-formal education to formal and believe that everyone should express themselves through art, besides their institutional education. I am programme manager of
the international film festival MikroFAF in Belgrade ever since 2010. For the last five years I run Inclusive film club „My Close-up”, for teenagers from vulnerable social groups, who together create films that reflect social injustice they face every day. I held a lot of film workshops both in rural and urban places, and I believe that film art can be a tool for building a healthier society. My short films participated at many festivals all over the Balkans and Europe, and won 14 awards. I`m also a chairwoman of the Satibara
Association, which is an active member of Association “Independent Culture Scene of Serbia”.
