my name is Bram Ruiter and I make films, mostly.

With my collage-like films, I explore the tension between appearance and disappearance and 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 make stuff on commission and I also teach a film course to bachelor and master students at ArtEZ University of the Arts. Occasionally, I make music.

The best way to contact me is via info@bramruiter.nl. Or you can find me on Instagram, Letterboxd and, sigh, Twitter.
