Head of Script Department
Wim Vanacker. After studying psychology and filmstudies in Gent and Antwerpen, he moved to Dublin to work as a psychologist in the field of drug addiction. During this period he was employed as a film critic and a programmer for several film festivals. After spending the last decade looking for his own creative voice, engaging himself in interior design, installation art, photography, writing and choreography, he realized none of them were sufficient to express himself fully.
They all missed a certain dynamic, a fire, an energy he did find in cinema. The sum of all parts. Whereupon he moved to Paris and picked up studying again at EICAR, the International Film School of Paris, where he made two shorts. Endgame, which got selected for 25 festivals thus far and won 5 awards along the way, and The Naked leading the Blind, which won three awards while just starting its festival career. After graduating, he discovered NISI MASA and started off working as the project coordinator of European Short Pitch to finally become the new head of the script department, ready to fully embrace the NISI MASA spirit. Vive le Cinéma, la plus belle escroquerie du monde !
