Iva Radivojevic is a filmmaker based in Brooklyn, NY. She spent her early years in Yugoslavia and Cyprus before settling in NYC. Her films explore the theme of belonging, migration and displaced identity. She tends to experiment with the refusal of the indexical, the attachment to representation. She is happiest when sculpting a story or hiding behind the camera lens where she’s transported into another world.

Iva’s films have screened at numerous film festivals including the New York Film Festival, SXSW, Rotterdam IFF, Human Rights Watch, HotDocs, Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), and were broadcast on PBS, Documentary Channel as well as the New York Times Op-Docs. She is the recipient of the 2015 Guggenheim Fellowship, 2012 Princess Grace Special Project Award, 2011 Princess Grace Film Fellowship and was named one of "25 New Faces of Independent Film of 2013" by Filmmaker Magazine.

Her debut feature length documentary Evaporating Borders, has received numerous awards worldwide, nominated for an International Documentary Association (IDA) Award, a Cinema Eye Honors Spotlight Award, and received One World Media Award for Refugee Reporting. Her newest work Notes From The Border was commissioned to launch Field of Vision, a new documentary unit founded by Laura Poitras, AJ Schnack and Charlotte Cook.
