Tessa Boerman

Tessa Boerman is an independent documentary filmmaker (e.g. A Knock out, Puck en het Raadsel van de codes, Zwart Belicht), programmer and cultural advisor. Her work focuses on issues of representation, diversity and inclusion. For IFFR she programmed Black Rebels focusing on international films about and predominantly by black people navigating the cultural divide since the origin of cinema. With the Dutch Directors Guild she advocated for cultural diversity and inclusion in the Dutch Film and TV industry. Her film Zwart Belicht painfully reveals the long history of exclusion: even what was meant to be seen, stayed unseen for centuries.
