Andrijana Ružić graduated in History and Criticism of Art at the Università degli Studi in Milan, Italy where she fell in love with the medium of animation. She specialised in History of Animated Film under Giannalberto Bendazzi's mentorship: the subject of her master thesis was the opus of two unpredictable spirits of the American independent animation scene, John and Faith Hubley, and their Storyboard Studio in New York City. As an independent scholar she has participated in numerous international conferences for animation studies presenting the works of diverse independent authors of animation and has served as a juror on international animation festivals. In the period from 2012 to 2019 she has been a program curator of the animated film section at the International Comics Festival in Belgrade, Serbia. She is the member of the Selection board of Animafest Scanner - Symposium for Contemporary Animation Studies held annually at the World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest Zagreb in Croatia. She writes about animation and other arts for Belgrade weekly magazine Vreme and is the author of the book Michael Dudok de Wit - A Life in Animation (CRC Focus).
