Silvia Martes (1985) graduated in 2013 at the Rietveld Academie with a Bachelor in Fine Arts, at the department of Audio-Visual.
She ended her studies with a nomination for the final examination price for the short film ‘She that comes from the green forest, on a Tuesday.’
Shortly after graduating she won a ShortsTV price at the Netherlands Film Festival, to produce the film ‘As Things Go’.
Subsidized by the Nederlands FilmFonds and the Mondriaanfonds; the Young Talent stipend and Project-fundings, she made different short films in the Netherlands, New York & Senegal. A 3-month Mondriaanfonds residency was granted in 2017, in Japan, where she made the film ‘Where the pink roses bloom even in November’ and ended her research with two solo-exhibitons in Ukiha and Tokyo. In 2018 her newest film ‘Terra Incognita’ will premier during a retrospective at Filmhuis Cavia. In 2019 she will start the 2-year postdoctoral residency at the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam.
