Christian Pazzaglia, co-director

I am a professional film programmer and multimedia curator based in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). I was born in Piacenza (Italy) in 1974 and moved to The Netherlands in 1999. Since 2006 I have been working as film programmer and as curator of special audiovisual events for festivals, venues and cultural institutions throughout The Netherlands and abroad.

Between 2008-2010 I was Head of Cinema for SMART Project Space in Amsterdam, managing and programming its two cinemas. Since 2011 I have been working as freelance programmer for a number of Amsterdam cinemas (Rialto, De Balie, Melkweg, Uitkijk) and film festivals (including PLAY Music & Film Festival / IDFA, See Me Hear Me Festival, The End Film Festival, Balkan Snapshots) curating special film programs and retrospectives. In 2013/2014 I worked as film programmer for Plaza Futura in Eindhoven.

I currently collaborate as external programmer with Bingerlab, FOAM and EYE in Amsterdam and I program music films and documentaries for Noordelijk Film Festival in Leeuwarden. Next to my work as film programmer I am the co-founder and curator of the live cinema project |Cine|Sonic|, a multimedia platform offering cutting-edge electronic music producers the opportunity to work with silent films and artist videos.

The |Cine|Sonic| program has been hosted by various major Dutch festivals and venues such as Lowlands Festival, 5 Days Off, Rocket Cinema, Noordelijk Film Festival, EYE Film Institute, Paradiso, Melkweg, Trouw and more. |Cine|Sonic| events are part of the regular program of GoetheInstitute Amsterdam, since 2009.
