Renovica was born in Cetinje, Montenegro and lived in Herceg Novi, Montenegro. She went to school in Novi Sad, Serbia, where in High School she had an opportunity to go to Cambridge University in England after being selected as a finalist in an Olympics of Philosophy contest orchestrated by the academic institution. Renovica stayed in Novi Sad and study film, enrolling in the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad.
At the age of nineteen, Renovica met Serbian-American writer and director Sasha Knezev, who was looking to develop films in Serbia. Knezev was beginning post-production on the highly acclaimed film franchise series American Addict, about prescription drug abuse in the United States. Renovica helped Knezev organize a post-production crew. This eventually led to a business partnership that inspired Renovica to open up her very own production company, 888 Films, while still finishing her education at her university.
In 2012, American Addict was nominated for Best Documentary Film at the acclaimed Seattle International Film Festival. American Addict was also rated the second best documentary on Netflix by Mic on its list of ’11 Netflix Documentaries That Will Change The Way You Think About Drugs’, ranking only below 2012 Sundance Grand Jury Prize Winner ‘The House I Live In’.
