Monika Ponjavić

Film and TV critic |

Monika was born in 1982. She is a passionate cook and a fan by nature. She once wrote a theory about Starks being turned into White Walkers and Jon's connection to the Great North that was published in Huffington Post and declared one of the Top 5 theories on Game of Thrones. This has brought her tens of thousands readers on her blog, on a daily basis. Monika is a connoisseur of Schwarzenegger's quotes and pop culture, who loves epic fantasy and fantasy in general. She is an avid fan of riding a subway, Mann, Leth, Heiner Goebbels, Severus Snape and prosciutto. Enjoys smell of theater, working on set creating scenography. Her torso is longer than her legs, which is why she appears taller when sitting down. She suffers from Koumpounophobia, an irrational and persistent fear of (plastic) buttons.
She currently works at the Ministry of education and culture, as a Senior Associate for Strategic Planning of Culture and European funds and is a freelance film and TV critic for Srpska Café and Nezavisne novine. Member of OISTAT Serbia, representative of BiH at the film fund Eurimages and a part of the team “Banja Luka 2024”. Monika's superpower is launching hype trains when all hope is lost.
