The brothers Jan and Raf Roosens are known for their keen eye and focus on the visual aspects of storytelling and meticulously chosen shots in a style best defined as poetic realism. Concurrently they prioritize the spontaneity of their actors.
In 2012 they shot their first short film ‘Rotkop’ (English: Skunk), which won several awards at internationally acclaimed festivals including Slamdance Film Festival, qualifying ‘Rotkop’ for Oscar selection in 2013.
In 2015, they completed ‘Copain’, their second short film. Copain was nominated for a Palm d’Or at the 68th Cannes Film Festival and won a Swann d’Or for best short film at the Cabourgh Film Festival.
In 2020, they received a second invitation to come to Cannes to present their third Short Film ‘Withe Goldfish’ as part of the official selection of the 59th Semaine De La Critique. Meanwhile they are working on their first feature film that recently received support from the Flanders Audiovisual Fund.
