Auguste Orts

The Brussels-based production and distribution platform Auguste Orts is founded by Herman Asselberghs, Sven Augustijnen, Manon de Boer and Anouk De Clercq.

In 2006, these four artists, active primarily (but not exclusively) in the expanded fields of film and video decided to join forces to found the Auguste Orts production platform, named after the obscure historical figure whose memory lives on in the street which housed the foursome’s former headquarters. Initially intended to address shared questions concerning production and distribution, the ambitions of Auguste Orts quickly transcended merely practical considerations; there were deeper reasons, after all, why these particular artists chose to exchange experiences and ideas, and these deeper reasons clearly relate to shared intuitions, sensibilities, and sensitivities vis-à-vis the film medium and the broader context of audiovisual production.

Since 2010 Auguste Orts has a partnership with LUCA School of Arts.
