Miro Remo is originally from the industrial town of Ladce (Slovakia), where he attended elementary school. He barely finished his secondary school (gymnazium) in Považská Bystrica. As soon as he was accepted into the documentary film-directing program at the Academy of Performing Arts, he left his mechatronics studies to study in the film atelier of Vlado Balco at the Academy, where he currently continues to work. Miro is the holder of more than 50 awards from international film festivals. Miro’s most successful film so far is a portrait of his uncle and grandmother called Arsy-Versy. In terms of number of awards received, it is the most successful Slovak film ever. Two of his titles, Comeback and Richard Muller: This is not Me, premiered as part of the KVIFF Documentary Film competition.
