Born in Dubrovnik. Her dramas explore the darker side of desire, the limits of family, and the danger of secrets.

Her short Into the Blue — a tense coming of age set on the rocky cliffs over the Adriatic — was awarded a Special International Jury Mention at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival, the Youth Jury Award at the 63rd Oberhausen Film Festival, the Heart of Sarajevo at the 23rd Sarajevo Film Festival, Grand Prix at Chicago International Children Film Festival, and was nominated for a Student Academy Award.

With her film partner, writer Christina Laziridi, she is currently developing her first feature film, MURINA, about a Croatian family swept onto an island that reveals the hidden violence between parents, lovers, and their children.

Antoneta is currently attending the Résidence du Festival of Cinéfondation in Paris, and is an alumna of the Berlinale Talent Lab, Sarajevo Talent Lab, Nisi Masa Short European Pitch, La Femis Producing Atelier, the Marcie Bloom Fellowship, and First Films First.

She holds an MFA in directing from Columbia University in New York.


Murina will be Antoneta's first feature film.
