Joe Swanberg: Collected Films 2011 from factory twenty five on Vimeo.

Joe Swanberg is one of the most prolific young independent filmmakers in America.  He has made five films in the past year alone, three of which we’ll be screening at AFI FEST as the Full Moon Trilogy, featuring ART HISTORY, SILVER BULLETS and  the world premiere of THE ZONE.  

Swanberg’s work has been showcased at almost every major film festival in the world.  He is a bold and original artist whose intimate stories challenge conventions and explore the relationships born of, and challenged by, the creative process.  Shooting quickly with handheld video cameras, Swanberg captures expressive, raw performances from his actors, many of whom are frequent collaborators.  It’s this intimate filmmaking process that fuels his often semi-autobiographical explorations of filmmaking, sex and the collision of art and life.
