Iva Radivojević was born in Belgrade and spent her early years in
Yugoslavia and Cyprus. She is an artist and filmmaker who currently divides
her time between subarctic Alaska, Brooklyn, and Lesbos. Her work presents
itself as a collection of fragments {observations, poetry, images, sounds,
melodies, languages} which collage together to connect into a ruminating
whole. The work circles around displacement and belonging, seeking to
connect to the metaphysical or the magical.

Iva’s films have screened at NYFF, Rotterdam IFF, CPH:DOX, SXSW, DocLisboa,
Museum of Modern Art (NYC), PBS and New York Times Op-Docs. She is the
recipient of the Sundance Art of Non-Fiction Fellowship, Guggenheim
Fellowship, Princess Grace Special Project Award and Film Fellowship, and
was named one of 25 New Faces of Independent Film.

When not working on her own films, Iva enjoys editing, cutting both
documentary and narrative films. Her work *MA* premiered at the Venice Film
Festival and *All That Passes By Through A Window That Doesn’t Open*, a
film she co-wrote and edited, won the Regard Neuf Award at Visions Du Reel
in 2017.
