Noël Loozen

director

Noël Loozen is an all-round accomplished artist, photographer and director. His most recent pursuit, filmmaking, has led to great success; his first short film ‘The Hornhunter’ (2014) was featured on Nowness, whilst ‘Spoetnik’ (2015) premiered at the prestigious Berlinale festival, won several prizes and was selected as Vimeo Staff Pick and featured on Short of the Week for its online launch. His most recent films ‘Botanica’ and ‘Limburgia’ both premiered in 2017, and were chosen to compete at the Dutch Film Festival the same year.

Driven by stories, Noël is fascinated by little worlds and the clumsiness of life. This manifest itself in his films by sharing the stories nobody are waiting for, or rather, the stories nobody knew they had to know about. Visually Noël tends to keep things simple whilst discretely adding subtle hints of irony to his images. Moving between the worlds of photography and film, his work is very much a reflection of this hybridity.
