Jonathan Schwartz makes short films that circulate primarily in an experimental and non-fiction film context. Films are generally constructed from fragmented collections and findings, from both exterior and interior spaces. His films have exhibited in many festivals including New York Film Festival "Views from the Avant-Garde" and “Projections”, TIFF "Wavelengths", Rotterdam, Ann Arbor, Images, Media City, Recontres Internationales, Exis, TIE, and others. Recent solo screenings include Austrian Film Museum, UnionDocs, Cinema Project, and San Francisco Cinematheque. He holds an MFA from Massachusetts College of Art, lives in Brattleboro, Vermont and is an associate professor at Keene State College.
