Iva Radivojevic spent her early years in Yugoslavia and Cyprus before settling in NYC to pursue her artistic goals over a decade ago. Her work explores the theme of identity, migration and immigrants. The characters she portrays tend to live in multiple worlds that allow for a form of hybridity.
Iva’s films have screened at various film festivals including Toronto’s HotDocs Film Festival, PBS, The Documentary Channel as well as the New York Times Op-Docs. Her collaborative film Matthew 24:14 won the 2011 International Documentary Challenge competition for Best Director, Best Film and Best Use of Genre. She is the recipient of 2011 Princess Grace Film Fellowship, 2012 Princess Grace Special Project Award and a participating talent at the 2012 Berlinale Talent Campus. Iva was named one of 25 New Faces of Independent Film of 2013 by Filmmaker Magazine.
She is happiest when editing and hiding behind the camera lens where she’s transported into another world. Iva is currently working on her first feature length documentary “Evaporating Borders," a selected project at IFP Film Week, Spotlight on Documentaries. Follow what she’s up to at www.ivaasks.com .
