Belgrade (also known as Belgrade with Boris Malagurski) is a 2013 Serbian-Canadian documentary film directed by Boris Malagurski about Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. The documentary film had its world premiere on 19 October 2013 at Sava Centar in Belgrade.[1]

As the first feature documentary film about Belgrade,[2] it presents the Serbian capital through the eyes of its inhabitants, presenting the history, culture, food and nightlife of the city.[3] The film is presented in English[4] and hosted by Boris Malagurski, who, according to his production company Malagurski Cinema, aims to capture the spirit of the Serbian capital.[5] The author claims that Belgrade boasts a unique quality and energy, in spite of the fact that it was destroyed and rebuilt over 40 times in its history and that the greatest attraction of the city are the citizens themselves.[6][7]

The documentary features interviews with prominent Belgraders, such as tennis player Novak Djokovic, who was also featured in the official trailer of the film.[8] In an interview for Večernje novosti, a Belgrade-based daily newspaper, Malagurski said that he made a break from producing the film while working on a documentary called "The Presumption of Justice", but that he still aims to show the capital of Serbia in the best possible way, as well as to inspire foreigners to come and visit it.[9]
