I’m Senne Dehandschutter (°1985), Belgian director for film and documentary.

I graduated in 2007, obtaining an academic master degree and specialization in film directing at RITS, which is part of the Erasmus University College (Brussels). My end project FERTILISE –a short film stuffed with visual effects- was selected in the official selection of Short Film Festival Leuven, Santa Barbara International FF, Montréal World Film Festival, LA Shorts Fest, Film Festival Milan, Palm Springs Festival of Short Films, Monterrey Film Festival and the Brussels Fantastic Film Festival among others.

Since I graduated, I directed and (co)produced several short films and television series such as the documentary series Climbing Spielberg –listed in the official selection of the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), Docville and Planete Doc Review. I also founded the talent agency In The Picture (www.inthepicture.tv) and the production company Earth In Motion (www.earthinmotion.eu). (As a director I also work with other production companies.) 

Recently, I produced and directed "Reis naar Marokko" and "Arabische Liefde", documentary series that were broadcasted on Belgian and French TV. I also just finished a new short film called 'Lost in the Middle'. It won the press jury award for BEST BELGIAN FILM + second place audience award at 'International Short Film Festival Leuven' (INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE IS AVAILABLE)

At the moment, I am creating my first fictional feature film for a cinematographic audience, with support from the Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF).
