Gwenaël Breës

Video director and organizer of documentary workshops in Brussels, Belgium. He is also one of the founders of the Nova Cinema (www.nova-cinema. org), a movie theatre that opened in January 1997 in the center of Brussels. The theatre’s programming is dedicated to independently produced films and videos. The Nova Cinema is therefore not a commercial screen, but a non-profit organization managed by a collective of individuals who work on a volunteer basis. In existence for over 17 years now, Nova has become an important reference point for alternative, unconventional or simply diff erent approaches to the audiovisual arts in Belgium and abroad.
