Igor Drljača

Born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Igor Drljača moved to Canada in 1993 with his family because of the war and spends his time between Sarajevo and Toronto. He completed his Master’s in Film Production at York University’s graduate program in 2011. His 2010 short film, Woman in Purple was made as part of the Sarajevo City of Film Grant, and has screened at dozens of international festivals, including Telluride Film Festival, Tampere Film Festival, Palm Springs Shortfest, and Sarajevo FF.

While primarily a fiction filmmaker, he continues to explore new territories and make hybrid and non-fiction work. The Fuse: Or How I Burned Simon Bolivar is his first non-fiction film, and has since been chosen as one of Canada’s Top Ten short films of 2011 and been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award as best Short Documentary. It has screened at various festivals and won a number of awards. Screenings include; Toronto IFF, SXSW, Melbourne IFF, Cinema du Reel, Los Angeles FF, Sarajevo FF, and Era New Horizons FF.

Krivina marks his feature film debut, and it had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and its European premiere at Rotterdam IFF.
