Dren Zherka (1980, Kosovo) gathered his first experience in film at home in Kosovo working in film production companies mainly producing short films, music videos, documentaries and advertisement, where he went through a lot of roles in the set, from location scout to production assistant. In 2003 he moved to New York, where with some other friends and colleagues was involved in creating independent videos, short films, and documentaries especially concentrating in the Albanian community there. In 2007 he moved to Berlin, Germany that he now calls home, and studied in Filmarche from 2011 to 2014, a filmmaking network and self-organised school, beside studying Ethnology in Humboldt University.
