Jason van Genderen


(He / Him)

Jason is an obsessive rule breaker, creative agitator and iPhone documentarian. His smartphone shorts have captured the adoration of festivals and audiences worldwide, having screened and won awards at Tropfest NY, IF Awards, Aspens Shortsfest, Palm Springs and Sundance London. Jason’s work is strikingly personal yet concurrently universal. Family life drives his narratives, the camera often a confessional tool. In 2020 he paused his career to care for his mother living with dementia, yet storytelling beckoned. His whimsical home videos documenting family life navigating this challenge quickly became viral, being seen over 100,000,000 times and inspiring Everybody’s Oma.
