    I’m trying to explore not confining to a single genre, but more looking to explore certain ideas within certain genres.

    Born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Igor Drljača moved to Canada in 1993 due to the wars in former Yugoslavia. He completed his Master’s in Film Production at York University’s graduate program in 2011. He runs the production company TimeLapse pictures with Albert Shin. His award winning shorts include WOMAN IN PURPLE (2010), and THE FUSE: OR HOW I BURNED SIMON BOLIVAR (2011), which have screened at hundreds of festivals. His critically acclaimed feature film KRIVINA (2012) premiered at TIFF. In 2014 he co-produced Albert Shin’s IN HER PLACE. In 2015 his feature documentary, THE WAITING ROOM, screened at FF Locarno.
