New Orangereel Director: Martin Iliev (Bulgaria)

Orangereel’s latest young director, Martin Iliev, has quickly risen to the top of the Bulgarian film scene since his debut a few years ago. From festival-worthy drama shorts to millenial- and Z-aimed TVCs, Martin makes films that put characters first, with a detail-oriented eye for production design and great framing. Martin is ready for the international stage, and we want to bring him out there.
