Robert Cambrinus

In 2002 I graduated from East 15 Acting School, Essex University, where I attended the Media Course. My first job was an acting role in a BBC production. Soon afterwards I started to develop my own film projects. I have been making short films since 2005 screening them internationally at film festivals. In my short films I explore aspects of subjective cinema, the destruction of illusion, and the receptive process.

In 2014/15 I held a scholarship at the HFF Munich (DrehbuchWerkstatt at the Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen) where I developed a feature film script.

An experimental feature-length film is currently in post production.

An interview screened in March 2018 on Okto TV as part of a retrospective is still viewable online (in German).

Robert Stokvis

I was born 1965 in Vienna to a Dutch father and a German-Polish mother. I spent my early childhood in Italy and completed academic studies in Vienna (PhD, University of Economics), Rotterdam (Diploma in European Studies, Erasmus University) and Cambridge (Master of Science/MBA, MIT Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Sloan School of Management). In the 1990s I worked as a consultant in Berlin and was part of the effort to privatize the former East German economy. From there I joined the Board of Directors of a mining company and later became an industrial entrepreneur producing insulating refractory bricks in Saxony, Germany. In 2001 I moved to London. I set up Concept Films in 2003. Since 2011 I live in the Austrian Alps on top of a mountain where I continue to develop new film projects...
