I am a professional film programmer and multimedia curator working in Amsterdam and Sydney.
Since 2006, I have been working as curator and producer of film programs and multimedia events for some of the most important multidisciplinary festivals, cinemas, cultural venues, art institutions and musea in The Netherlands and internationally.
In 2011 I established Cracking the Frame, the only regular program dedicated to art documentaries in The Netherlands and Belgium, and I am the artistic director of the multidisciplinary art platform Cracking the Frame Presents.
In 2007, I co-founded the live cinema project |Cine|Sonic|, a multimedia platform aimed at presenting silent and experimental films and videoart compositions with new electro-acoustic scores, with shows presented at IDFA, Lowlands festival, 5 Days Off, EYE Film Institute, Imagine Film Festival, Transylvania International Film Festival and may more.
I am among the founders and the program coordinator of l’Échappée Belle, a newly established French cinémathèque in Amsterdam and the co-founder of Plein les Yeux, the only French and Francophone film festival in The Netherlands.
Throughout the years, I curated various film and visual arts programs for Dutch cultural institutions (EYE Dutch Film Institute, Van Gogh Museum, Goethe Institute, Institut Français, FOAM…), cinemas (Rialto, De Balie, Uitkijk, Ketelhuis, Filmhallen, Melkweg, LAB111, Plaza Futura/Natlab…) and film festivals (IDFA, TIFF, Imagine Film Festival, Noordelijk Film Festival, LIFF, La Notte…).
Next to my work as artistic director and programmer, I have recently started working as independent film producer, with current projects in The Netherlands, Australia and Japan. My first international production was Daisuke Miyazaki’s film ‘Yamato (California)’, which had its World Premiere at the Festival Du Nouveau Cinema in Montreal in October 2016.
