From Wikipedia
Zoran Dragelj (June 30, 1975, Split, Croatia) is an award winning independent filmmaker/videographer and author from Vancouver, British Columbia. A graduate from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (ECIAD), Zoran holds a diploma in Fine Arts - Film & Video. Following graduation, his work has focused primarily in the field of video production and motion picture.

Zoran won the first prize for his highschool, the King George Secondary School and the Lower Mainland Region of BC at Dairyland Canada's annual "It's Cool to be Yourself" contest. Several of Zoran's early works, including When You Get Old (1995), and Moving Plates (1996) have enjoyed international screenings at some of the world's top film festivals, and have been broadcast on Production Parade (Rogers Community 4), and Videoconexions Knowledge (TV channel).[1] In 1994, Zoran received both the Joseph Golland Award and Memorial Scholarship for "up-and-coming filmmaker". May 1997 saw his selection as a finalist in the 1997 National Apprenticeship Cinematography Training Program by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television.

A successful international film festival tour followed wherein Moving Plates garnered enough attention to warrant a worldwide distribution from a Los Angeles distributor. ZeD TV (CBC) also aired Moving Plates in 2004 and Fast in January 2006. In 1998, Zoran created Aboriginal Kaleidoscope, a First Nations Film and Video Retrospective, which showed at several international film and video festivals.

Most recently Zoran’s work was cited by Chris Gehman and Steve Reinke in their book The Sharpest Point: Animation at the End of Cinema. In 2005 he presented his first major retrospective of his films and videos in Florence, Italy. In addition, some of his short films were recently exhibited in New York, Toronto, London, Berlin, Vienna, Madrid, Montréal, Sao Paulo and Vancouver galleries.

Zoran also developed an interactive CD ROM for the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia’s (ICBC) Road Sense Program, and has directed UNICEF’s Halloween’s Partners for Safety PSA that was broadcast locally on CIVT-TV (then known as VTV-Vancouver Television) and CHAN-TV (UTV-Global).

In May 2009, Zoran was elected as the first Alumni Association representative on the Emily Carr Senate.
