Katharina Kastner is an Austrian filmmaker working in Brussels and Vienna. She studied film at TISCH School of the Arts in NYC and Doc Nomads, a documentary film master travelling three European cities (Lisbon, Budapest and Brussels).

Katharina Kastner’s films are cross-overs of documentary, essayistic and experimental elements. Aspects of movement, fragility, fractures and invisible scars are at the core of her work. She is searching for traces, using the analogue camera to collect and explore inner and outer transformations.


Her films are motivated by fragile environments and the people behind them.
