Marija directs films that blur borders between documentary and fiction and treats her narratives as a non-linear, complex and fragmented. She is a The New School for Media Studies in New York and Academy of Arts in Belgrade alumna. Her recent projects focus on cultural heritage, ancestral music and experimental sound, an interest derived from her background in music as a traditional Serbian music vocalist.
In 2016, Marija founded production house Bilboke in Serbia. She is a guest lecturer and a member of DokSerbia, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in category Film/Video for 2015 and Instituto Sacatar in Brazil fellow for 2017 in the same category. Since September 2019, together with producers Andrijana Sofranić and Miloš Ivanović, she’s been running SET SAIL FILMS, a film company in Belgrade.
