Teodor Reljić is a writer of fiction with extensive experience of film criticism and cultural journalism. He has been contributing the national newspaper MaltaToday since the early 2000s, and his debut novel, Two, is published by Merlin Publishers in 2014, and was shortlisted for the National Book Prize in the following year.
He has previously been published in Weird Fiction Review, Le Monde N’Est Pas Rond and Filmkrant. He has written MIBDUL, Malta’s very first serialized comic, which will be illustrated by Inez Kristina and launched in late 2019 through Merlin Publishers.
For film production company Shadeena Entertainment, Reljić has co-written Camilla, a short film adaptation of the Clare Azzopardi short story of the same name, which won the National Book Council’s Literary Short Film Contest. Co-written and directed by Stephanie Sant, Camilla premiered on November 10, 2018 at the Malta Book Festival.
Reljić’s other collaboration with Shadeena is a forthcoming horror feature film, entitled Inheritance and slated to commence filming in 2019.
Reljić is also the current editor of the quarterly arts and culture publication, ENCORE.
Reljić read English and obtained his Master’s degree from the University of Malta in 2010. Born in Belgrade (1985) but raised in Malta (1992-present), he is interested in myth, metamorphosis, monstrosity, film history and pop culture; a melange of which you will likely see dripping into this blog in semi-regular intervals.
