Imge Özbilge (TR), Sine Özbilge (TR)
The sister directors duo Imge Özbilge and Sine Özbilge work together as each other’s mirrors. They experiment with the medium of animation, the 16:9 screen, digital installation art and the use of mixed media, exploring new connotations and stylistic forms. When writing concepts, Sine focuses on psychological matters and the subconscious, while Imge reflects on the surreality of society. The directors duo have collaborated on the award-winning short film Camouflage (world premiere – Cannes Film Festival 2017) and #21xoxo (world premiere – BFI Film Festival 2019) and are currently working on their latest short ‘The Curator.’
