Born 1993 in the Netherlands but lived for 13 years in Austria.
For my bachelor degree i came back to the Netherlands.
Now I am currently doing my Master degree at the Frank Mohr Institute.

Since my childhood I have always been inspired by video games, computer animations, movies and fantasy books, which had led me to do my own 3D animations.

Director Statement

My art is primary digital and interactive, made with the computer, which allows me to discover what is possible in no other medium. My work embraces the unphysical, digital nature of those images and discovering the relationship between technology and humans.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
