FILM DIRECTOR                                                                             

 











Dylan Werkman (1993), a Dutch film director and editor based in Amsterdam.
In film I primarily explore the boundaries between fiction and documentary.
Along these boundaries I use nature, poetry and archival footage as a tool for reflection.
You could argue that my films often carry some form of existentalism in them. 
Besides autonomous work I have participated in various commissioned projects
and I’ve gained years of experience working as an editor.
