Johann LURF (1982, Austria) was educated at art academies in Vienna and London. He makes short films and installations, and works part-time as a projectionist. His work has been screened and received awards at several international festivals. In 2009 he took a diploma at Harun Farocki´s filmclass.

Johann Lurf will attend AMIFF to screen and talk about his highly unique, sensational and ambitious experimental film ★, consisting solely of found-footage material of starry skies through cinematic history, collected from non the less then impressive 550 films! (That is, so far. Johann will continue the project by providing a new, longer version each year.)
