Wouter Springer
Rotterdam / NL
director, writer, artist

Writer of the books Jij bent van mij (2016) and Ontwrestled (2022), made his debut as a film director with the short film Weird (2017) and maker of short films that have been screened all over the world or have received nominations or awards. Also exhibited with visual art from 2021, in galleries and at events. From 2022 my own studio annex breeding ground Kobalt & Co., created in Rotterdam in consultation with other artists.

In terms of themes that I focus on and what I write about, what I contribute to or what I produce can be seen as controversial. I like to do something with language: a different or secret language, poetry, double meanings. What I do the most is that I do something different than usual.

Personal: winner of Autovisie's Photo Competition 'AutoRAI 2011'. In team: Audience Award Imagine Filmfestival 2013 with the trailer Tree of Flesh. Young Positive Media Award 2013 for the film Ruben.
