Julia Schmitz is a filmmaker with a focus and passion for direction, but is also skilled in editing, research and camera work (mostly documentary style). With an art school bachelors (Royal Academy of Art, The Hague) and a masters in Visual Anthropology (Goldsmiths University, London), she continues to explore her fascination for the power of the image and the construction of stories. 

Her work is characterised by playful and sometimes provocative connections of image and sound, by which humour plays an important role to explore complex topics such as sexuality. She has an essayistic approach that often uses a mix of media such as archive footage, photography and freshly shot material.

Her freelance work consists of directing, editing and camera work, sometimes all together, sometimes separately. Occasionally, she also does photography. She’s open to any type of job that involves image-making and storytelling.
