Brecht Andersch

Brecht Andersch co-founded the Austin Film Society in 1986, and currently serves as Board Chair of the Bay Area-based Film on Film Foundation, whose mission is to encourage the appreciation of projected celluloid motion picture film as central to the cinematic experience. Since May ’07, he has curated the on-going FOFF series “Radical Strategies,” including rare screenings of Jean-Isidore Isou’s Venom & Eternity, Yoshishige Yoshida’s Eros Plus Massacre, and Joseph Losey’s Accident.

After joining the OPEN SPACE discussion of Berlin Alexanderplatz (viewable here, here, and here) in June 2008, Andersch has continued to contribute articles on SFMOMA film shows to the museum’s blog. He spent much of 2009 also writing the weekly column “Highly Recommended!“, focusing on the Bay Area repertory film scene, for the Film on Film website.

As an actor, Andersch appeared as the “Dostoyevsky wannabee” in Richard Linklater’s Slacker (1991).

His interview with Stan Brakhage will appear in Radical Light: Alternative Film and Video in the San Francisco Bay Area, 1945-2000, to be published by University of California Press fall 2010.

Andersch is currently editing two films: a low-budget feature, and a lyrical experimental work in the Brakhage/Baillie mode, both photographed in 16mm black & white.
