Jonas Geirnaert

Jonas Geirnaert

Jonas Geirnaert (born 1982 in Ghent, Belgium) studied animation at the KASK in Ghent. In May 2004 he won the jury prize ("not" the Golden Palm) for shorts at the Cannes Film Festival with his animated short "Flatlife" (11 min). Of the copy he sent in for selection only the first minute had sound. This is because this was his graduation project, and it wasn't completely finished at the final date for selection entries.

Although Flatlife has no political message, Jonas' previous movie, "The All-American Alphabet", clearly has one. On stage in Cannes, Jonas had a message for all Americans: "Don't vote Bush". In the fall of 2005 Geirnaert made the TV comedy series Neveneffecten for Canvas (public Flemish television) with his fellow comedians Lieven Scheire, Koen De Poorter and Jelle De Beule.
