Panel of Directors

As part of the IN-EDIT Industry Meetings, a panel of distinguished filmmakers and professionals exchange opinions on a subject pertaining to this year’s theme of IN-EDIT.

For the last few minutes of the panel discussion, the floor is open to the audience to participate, allowing for the conversation to become more lively and interactive, encouraging further discussions beyond the session.

The Industry Meetings will take place at Melkweg on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th of April 2022. The Panel of Directors will take place on the 7th of April 2022.

Jonnah Bron

Her way of working, view on aesthetics and the constant urge to contribute to a better representation of different subcultures, has never let her down.

As a visual thinker she likes to immerse with people, stories and relationships. Jonnah likes to shed light on this from an authentic, honest and investigative perspective. Out of a great need to be better represented as a queer person, she started pointing her camera at her and her loved ones. Jonnah’s interest lies mainly in making intimate portraits and everything that comes with it; how do you create the safest possible bubble between photographer and model?
Topics such as sexuality, identity and relationships are recurring themes that she highlight.

At the moment Jonnah is working on her short film about the different forms of intimacy. She is part of the Studio HER collective.
