With more than 20 years experience as Producer and Director Bafta Nominated, Producer of Rush (2013), Jens has worked on more than 60 movies. In 1990, he started making documentaries; five years later, he won the European Film Award for “European Documentary Filmmaker of the Year”. He is currently filming An Impossible Project – Documentary on 35mm on 35mm. “Filming on 35mm today is a riff on the challenges and opportunities of the analog approach: It is more expensive and has limitations to be taken into account. But the thinking and focus required is almost liberation from the tyranny of ‘just-let-it-roll’-digital.”
Founder of Tintype Berlin Marcin offers hand-crafted analog silver photographs made with an antique recipe: a liquid emulsion called collodion. You witness the creation process step by step and the image almost magically appearing before your own eyes. Unlike any other kind of photographs, collodion portraits posses the ability to look into the deepest layers of your soul, revealing personal qualities that no other technique can capture. He will offer a live demonstration of his analog practices on the night.
The owner of an uncompromised record label and musical curator at SUPERSENSE in Vienna. It was the end of the 20th century when Sounds of Subterrania released its first 7” with Slice 49. To Gregor music is a very special form of communication, a form of expression: “One can call it art but to me it’s no longer art if you do it for money. You have to be uncompromising, understanding where you stand.” His approach is very much focused on offering alternatives to the mainstream. Earning him the title of “godfather of special packaging in conjunction with a vinyl record”.
