Where It All Started
Born in 1988 to Prof. Dr. Branislav Malagurski and Slavica Malagurski, Boris grew up in the northern Serbian town of Subotica. Malagurski’s last name originates from the Polish town of Mała Góra. In the 17th century, a soldier from that town fought under the command of Prince Eugene of Savoy against the Turks in the Battle of Senta and afterwards decided to stay in Subotica, which is now in the Serbian province of Vojvodina. Malagurski emigrated to Canada in 2005. While studying Film Production at the University of British Columbia, Malagurski became a Canadian citizen and founded the Malagurski Cinema production company. In 2011, he moved to Belgrade and in 2019, he finished his Masters Degree at Staffordshire University in the United Kingdom.
