I am Goran Mihailov, a passionate filmmaker based in Bucharest, Romania. My love for film began at a young age and has been a driving force in my life ever since. In 2008, I enrolled at the National University of Drama and Cinematography “I.L Caragiale” in Bucharest, where I spent the next six years honing my skills as a filmmaker. In 2014, I earned my MA in film directing from the faculty of film at UNATC, ready to make my mark in the industry. One of my major films was Wedding Duet, a short fiction film produced by UNATC. I was thrilled when it won the Overall Best Prize at the International Student Film Festival Cluj-Napoca in 2012 and the Special Mention for Short Film at the Donostia Zinemaldia Festival de San Sebastian International Film Festival. It also won the award for Best Student Short Film at the Independent Producers International Film Festival Bucharest in 2011 and the Award for Best Students’ Short Fiction Film at the goEast Festival of Central and Eastern European Film Wiesbaden in 2012. I also directed Miercuri, a short fiction film produced by Strada Film & Studioset Transilvania, which was selected for the Romanian Days section at the Transilvania International Film Festival. In addition to these two films, I have directed several other short fiction films, including Good night, mother, Hahol, and Be that man. The latter won the award for best actor at the International Student Short Film Festival Bucharest, which was a great honor for me. I have also directed a documentary film called Ioana's House, which showcased my versatility as a filmmaker. I have also directed several more short fiction films, including Str., Blinded, and Mind your step, which was selected for the Stranger Festival Amsterdam. My passion for filmmaking has taken me on a remarkable journey, from my early days studying at UNATC to becoming an award-winning filmmaker in my own right. With each film I direct, I continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in cinema, captivating audiences with my unique vision and storytelling ability.
