Bavo Defurne
(1971 - living) Belgium

Bavo Defurne

Film director


Born in Gent, he grew up in a village close to Oostende, Belgium. Bavo studied film and video at St. Lukas Art School in Brussels. Before he focussed his career on directing, Defurne worked as assistant director on experimental filmmaker Matthias Müller's shorts Alpsee (1995) and Pensão Globo (1997). Bavo was a set decorator on many films, like Peter Greenaway's The Baby of Mâcon (1993) and Vincent Bal's De man van Staal (1999).

His first short video, Atlantis, already demonstrated Defurne's obsessions- the body and the power of nature and silence.

Besides directing, he now teaches Film and Video Art at the Art Academy in Oostende and works as a photographer.
