Séverine De Streyker/ Biography
Born in Mons on 23.08.75, Severine De Streyker moved to Brussels in 1992.
She graduated in cinema studies at INRACI in 1995 and obtained a licence in Screenwriting from the Université Libre de Bruxelles in 1997, while simultaneously attending evening classes in painting at the Academie des Beaux Arts and theatre at Studio Parallax.
Upon completion of her studies, she immediately starts work as editor for the film director and anarchist Jan Bucquoy, for whom she edits 3 feature-length films, thus mastering underground film. She then goes on to work with other, more mainstream, Belgian directors (Jean-Marc Vervoort, Manuel Poutte, Michael Alalouf….). She specializes in the editing of fiction as well as documentaries and also produces current events features for channels such as CNN, ARTE, RTBF and France 24.
