my name is Bram Ruiter and I make moving images, mostly.

With my collage-like films, I explore the tension between appearance and disappearance. I prefer roads that lead nowhere in particular. In my practice, I often use obsolete or non-traditional materials or methods mixing VHS, super8, miniDV, 4K, video game footage and paper.

They've been screened at the Viennale, Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Mostra Internazionale del Nuovo Cinema (Pesaro Film Fest), Van Gogh Museum and the Netherlands Film Festival among many others. My Curriculum Vitae gives a good overview. Some of my films are distributed by Collectif Jeune Cinema.

For a living, I teach a film course at ArtEZ University of the Arts (BA & MA), I curate film programs, and I take on the occasional commissioned work. For fun, I make music.
