"My films arent designed to be seen just by aficionados. You dont need any prior knowledge when you watch one of my films. If you leave the cinema moved or impressed you can then always think about the subject matter too. But you dont have to." - Siegfried A. Fruhauf (in interview, Viennale 2010)

Siegfried A. Fruhauf was born in Austria in 1976. He has studied experimental visual design at the University of Artistic and Industrial Design in Linz. His films have been selected in various international festivals (Festival de Cannes - Semaine Internationale de la Critique, International Film Festival of Venice - Section Nuovi Territori, Sundance Film Festival Park City...).

"The fact that Siegfried Fruhauf's films have a certain hypnotic effect cannot be denied. Battles of material take place in them, they contain reflections and illusions, soundtracks filled with noise and visual interference signals run riot; at the same time all the structural experiments the filmmaker risks never rigidify in the merely theoretical. Fruhaufs cinema is extremely atmospheric and decidedly non-academic. On the contrary, it presents itself as being radically undogmatic, alternating between abstraction and representation, between punk and classicism."
- Stefan Grissemann
