In 1995 I co-founded All NIZO and the Super-8-Film-Zentrale Hamburg and organized, curated and moderated 50 independent-street-film-screenings. In 1998 I had the idea for the GS8D.

Coming from Hamburg, I have been living for 7 years in the Basel metropolitan region with atelier in Basel since 2016. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary I organize the GS8D for the first time myself.
