Iris Frankhuizen (1991, NL) is a Dutch animation filmmaker based in Amsterdam. Since she graduated from the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht in 2015, she has been working on production projects for Studio Pupil and KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival, filmmaking projects for (a.o.) De Wereld Draait Door, Groninger Museum and De Volkskrant, and develops personal concepts.
Iris is very much interested in the possibilities of animation documentaries and the social impact of it. A typical ‘Iris film’ is recognisable for its tangibility, dreamlike design and strong concept. Inspired by expressionist artists as H.N. Werkman, Gerhard Richter and David Hockney, she as well urges to address a certain emotion, mood or experience to the viewer.
