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 UnionDocs, Cinema Project, and San Francisco Cinematheque. In 2010, he was included in The Film Society of Lincoln Center's Avant-Garde Poll in Film Comment as one of 25 Filmmakers for the 21st century. He holds an MFA from Massachusetts College of Art, lives in Brattleboro, Vermont and is an associate professor at Keene State College.
