Marta Djordjevic


Marta Djordjevic is a pop culture writer and editor living and working in Vancouver, Canada.



The following is a collection of my favorite writing projects. I am currently working as a features editor at Nicki Swift and as a freelance writer both at Looper and Grunge, with a focus on old Hollywood nostalgia and cinema.

I’m always working on something on the side, both in print and online. You can find my work at Localeur - on their website and podcast (here), along with my poetry, which can be found at Everytime Zine (here and here). For years, I also ran my blog, Paradise Playground, where I interviewed various musicians and collaborated with Netflix, Taro PR, and Elevation Pictures to review upcoming movie releases.

On the side, I run my @marta.mcfly TikTok account, where I share my film recommendations and encourage discussion and analysis on classic and contemporary cinema.

I hope you enjoy my work and I invite you to contact me with any questions.
