Gigi Ben Artzi

Gigi Ben Artzi is a New York-based director who started his career as a fashion photographer before exploring the narrative power of moving images, where he felt he could ask looming questions deep in his mind.

His film work has been praised for its strong composition, cinematography, and the depth of his characters, often choosing to shoot in 16mm film. His short E.W.A.—that follows a teenage girl with a condition that makes her unable to fit into society—was shortlisted for the Grand Jury Prize at 2016’s American Film Institute Film Festival and was premiered in Nowness; as well, his work has been featured in media houses such as i-D, Ignant, Oyster, and Marfa Film Festival.
