milan balog

director

Born in 1980 in Trenčín, Slovakia, Milan was an avid reader and writer in his youth. His constant inner drive to study and describe the world around him led him to choose documentary film study at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Milan claims that he has an ‘eclectic’ style of filmmaking. He doesn’t stick to any one genre, and nothing he does is formulaic. He manages equally well across the board, just as he did with his movie LooP, for which he was awarded a Grand Prix (Kyoto, Japan), Honorable Mention (Fresh Film Festival, Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic), and Special Jury Prize (Angers, France), and his graduation film1.35 for which he won the Arte Award (Oberhausen, Germany), Silver off (Wroclaw, Poland), and Honorable Mention (Fidechuy, Belgium).

Milan has been working with, clients who continue to bring Milan on as director: Ikea, Tiger beer, Budweiser, O2, Tchibo , Nestlé, AA.
