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

With my collage-like films, I explore the unperceivable, unfinished and lost. In other words, I prefer roads that lead nowhere in particular. In my practice, I often use obsolete or non-traditional materials and 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 for-hire. I also teach an undergrad and post-grad film course 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.
