biography

Urška Djukić (1986) studied at the Academy of Arts in Nova Gorica. Her short film Bon Appétit, La Vie! won the award for Best Short at the National Festival of Slovenian Film 2016. In 2018, she was invited to participate at SEE Factory, a joint project for young directors curated by Directors’ Fortnight and Sarajevo Film Festival. There she co-directed a short film The Right One that was presented within Cannes 2019. The same year she was selected for the 39th Cinéfondation Residence where she continued developing her debut, Little Trouble Girls.
By combining live-action, animation, and various forms of experimental techniques Urška Djukić creates hybrid visual narratives and is especially focused on exploring topics of contemporary womanhood.
