Andrew Kötting (United Kingdom)

Andrew Kötting is an award winning filmmaker, artist and Professor of Time Based Media at The University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury. After leaving school he worked as a scrap metal dealer and then as a lumberjack in Scandinavia before returning to college to study Fine Art. He graduated from The Slade in London with an MA. He made numerous short films, which were awarded prizes at international film festivals before making his idiosyncratic first feature-film Gallivant (1996); a four-month journey around the coast of Britain, in which he was accompanied by his octogenarian grandmother Gladys and his daughter Eden. Subsequent feature films include This Filthy Earth in 2001, Ivul in 2009, This is our Still Life in 2011 and Swandown in 2012. His films are in the collections of Arts Council Great Britain and Centre Pompidou, France. He currently lives and works between Fougax-et-Barrineuf in the French Pyrenees and St Leonards-on-Sea on the south coast of England.
