Elsbeth Fraanje
Elsbeth fraanje

In her author driven, often stilistic films Elsbeth shows compelling stories of 'ordinary' people and how these reflect on daily society. Indirectly and mildy comical, she puts down serious questions about our own life's struggles.

Her work is shown at A-festivals such as Hotdocs, IDFA, CPHDox, Slamdance, Jihlava, Krakow and on TV. The acclaimed documentary Highway Confessions (2017) won the Dutch Academy Award. In addition to her work as a director, Elsbeth is a curator and programme maker at European Short Film festival Go Short. She is an alumnus of the IDFA Academy and Kids & Docs Workshop.
