Brooklyn-based Jennifer Reeves has made 20+ film works since 1990. Her films construct visceral and subjective experiences for viewers through 16mm direct-on-film techniques, first-person cinematography, montage and optical-printing. Her experimental-narratives, hand-painted films, and multiple-projection performances, have screened extensively from the Berlin, Toronto, and Hong Kong Film Festivals, to universities, micro-cinemas and museums such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum and the National Gallery of Art. Full retrospectives of her work have been hosted by venues including Poland’s Era New Horizons Film Festival, Berlin’s Kino Arsenal, Anthology Film Archives, and San Francisco Cinematheque. In 2012 Reeves was named one of the “Best 50 Filmmakers Under 50” in Cinema Scope Journal. Reeves’ recent short Color Neutral screened at Sundance, New York, Melbourne and Oberhausen Film Festivals. Recently, her feature-length double-projection 16mm WHEN IT WAS BLUE (2008) was screened as part of the Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema from 1905-2016 Exhibit at Whitney Museum of American Art.
