LUCIËNNE VENNER (1989)

In 2017 Luciënne Venner graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy with the film A Ride to Moresnet, a portrait of a woman who travels to the forgotten neighboring country 'Moresnet'. The film, labeled as the best graduationfilm by HET PAROOL, Jan Pieter Ekker, shows Venner's fascination by 'The idea of a personal transformation in a Dyonysian environment and schedding an accepted persona in exchange for a new one'. In 2018 she made her debut film Error of Eros, about that if we don't embrace fear, there will never be bliss. This film testifies to her appetite for risk in her working method, such as choosing three shooting opportunities for this analogue one-shot film. Desire, eroticism and sexual identity are important themes in her films as we can experience in the world of Silent Heat, which has been selected for the Golden Calf competition 2021 at the Netherlands Filmfestival.

Her work has been shown at festivals such as the Netherlands Filmfestival and abroad during film festivals and exhibitions such as Brooklyn Film Festival and Korean Queer Film Festival in Seoul, Fairytales Queer Film Festival in Calgary in Canada. Her film Error of Eros was selected for Forum of the Directors at the NFF and received the Award for the best art film at the Nahia Filmfestival in Granada, Spain. It has also been shown at the Kassel Documentary festival in Germany, Dutch Center in London, One take festival in Zagreb in Croatia and the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art in Russia. Her latest film Silent Heat has been selected for the Gouden Kalf competition and will be screened at Long Beach Qfilmfestival, LA Queerfilmfestival and Frameline Fangs showcase in San Francisco. Luciënne Venner is supported, among others, by the Mondriaan Fund, Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, Netherlands Film Fund and is currently working on her first feature film HILLROY, which is supported by, among others, the Limburgs Film Fund.
