Stana Milanovich Biography

Pasadena City College Cinema Program

Ms. Stana Milanovich – Adjunct Faculty, yourfilmprof@earthlink.net
Stana Milanovich came from the cold mining town of Butte, Montana to the warm embrace of Southern California where she initially studied film under the well-known experimental filmmaker Chick Strand at Occidental College.  Hooked for life, she went on to get an MFA in the field at USC...well, actually not in a field but rather in their lovely CNTV production program. 

Since then she's enjoyed some small success at small festivals (Best Directorial Debut and Best Romantic Short -- New York International Independent Film Festival), published a little poetry (a reading was spoken about on Belgrad radio!) and read a lot of scripts for film companies (National Geographic, Intermedia, Walden & Bristol Bay).  She's taught at Antelope Valley College and now Pasadena City College and loves talking to students about their work.   In her spare time she laughs about the idea of having spare time, helps plants and two small people grow, wishes she wrote more, and plays games.
