BRIAN DEN HARTOG
Brian den Hartog (1989) finished his studies in Audio Visual Arts at RITCS School of Arts Brussels with high distinction, during which he made 'A Dialogue with Cyberspace', an experimental documentary about the virtualization of the human body. The film premiered at the Rotterdam International Film Festival and travelled around numerous prestigieus festivals such as HKIFF Hong Kong, Int Shot Film Fest Oberhausen, Riga Int Film Fest, Transmediale and Film Fest Gent. The film was awarded Best Experimental Film at GUFA Hong Kong.
It is hard to categorize Brian's work into one specific genre. His films are often born from a documentary origin: A character, phenomena or event that triggers him to explore. From there he starts his research which he eventually translates into a filmic universe that immerses the viewer in an experience in which the lines between what's real and what's not - between documentary and fiction - start to dissolve.
From 2016-2018 Brian worked as junior producer at Inti Films (Brussels) where he worked on several award-winning films, including Ben Asamoah's 'Sakawa', Christina Vandekerckhoven's 'Rabot' and Peter Van Goethem's 'Night Has Come'.
Currently, Brian is developing his first feature film ‘Khannea’. Next to his autonomous work as an artist, Brian creates videos for musea and teaches about (documentary) film to youngsters and students.
Brian lives and works in Rotterdam (NL).
