“BISFF Talk: Duet” is a new type of masterclass in which filmmakers give an overview of their oeuvre and past work, as well as ask questions about and discuss the works of other filmmakers with the audience. Unlike previous masterclass programs, the audience will be able to participate in the filmmakers' exchange of opinions and discussion, which will provide the audience with an insight into the creative process and an explanation of the work. Douwe Dijkstra and PolakVanBekkum (Esther Polak and Ivar Van Bekkum) from this year’s “BISFF Guest Country” will join us for “BISFF Talk: Duet”. The invited guests have an eclectic filmmaking style, which includes experimental, documentary, and drama. Ultimately, they are all filmmakers who make unique work. We're looking forward to hearing the filmmakers talk about their interests and ideas.

Douwe Dijkstra is a filmmaker and video artist from the Netherlands. He studied Illustration Design at ArtEZ. His work is a mixture of film, animation and VFX and can be described as humorous and socially engaged. As a co-founder of the 33 1/3 collective, he intertwines theatre productions and video projections. In 2014 he created the video installation and short film called Demontable, in 2015 the documentary short Supporting Film.
PolakVanBekkum's (Esther Polak and Ivar Van Bekkum) work is about movement and landscape. Lost on Arrival (2020) is a new step in their line of work. Over the years, they developed a cinematographic method for synchronizing audio recordings with mapped routes, thus realizing documentaries based on movement. This allowed them to create films that proceed within projected satellite images from Google Earth. Their earlier films, A Collision of Sorts (2017), Go Move Be (2018), and The Ride (2019) were shown internationally.
