Lum has over two decades of rich experience as a filmmaker, visual and media artist, and over 10 years of experience as cultural manager and researcher. He has worked with film, new media, and anthropologically informed media creation as a creative director, researcher, producer, and lecturer. 

He holds a Masters in Visual and Media Anthropology (Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology) from Freie University in Berlin with highest grades. Prior to that he received a Bachelor of Science in Applied Arts and Sciences from Rochester Institute of Technology, where he lectures as of 2020. As a scholar of EU’s and GoK’s YCS program, Lum joined the Kosovo Cinematography Center in 2019, to continue his contribution to the sector now also from within the institutions and where he has led the main film institution for two years (2021-2023). He is also a member of the European Film Academy.

During his studies situated within the subdiscipline of Digital Anthropology, he expanded on his ‘Dialectics and Aesthetics of Creating with the Digital - An Anthropology of Interface’ - a tempo-historic phenomenology – combination of multisided and sensory ethnographic research, digital ethnography, and interactive film project which investigates the lives of digital creators through a shared exploration of layers of belief systems and experiences, processing relationships, daily engagements and their creations. Recently, he began building on a new research project contextualised as reflections within an Anthropology of Emotions and Intimacy.

His latest film and new media works include: “1990s’ School-Houses in Kosova” (2020), "GOF” – Filmworld (2019), "Women of Liberty" (2018),  "Voices from within" (2018), “The numerous thoughts and things” – interactive film (2017), "Machinima Film" (2016) etc.
