    A film is a conversation between the director and the audience: you make the film together.

    Peter Monsaert (Ghent, 1975) has developed an artistic career in various disciplines: theater, film, video art and community arts, both as a director, scenographer and actor. Monsaert’s first feature OFFLINE (2012) was selected for several international film festivals and received various awards. FLEMISH HEAVEN, Monsaert’s second film, premiered at TIFF in 2016 and had an even more successful festival career with selections all over the world.
