Brecht Vanhoenacker

director - editor - cameraman



Brecht Vanhoenacker graduated from KASK, Ghent, as a ‘master in audiovisual art’.
Brecht started working as an assistant director in 2003. In 2004 he directed his first commercial with the production company CCP, which soon gave him the opportunity to move further on in his career. He worked for Czar Brussels and Amsterdam, Wanda Paris, Mercurio Rome and is currently represented by Caviar Content Brussels.

Brecht has shot a lot of visual comedy and was honored with several international awards, including the golden award at New York Festival and the silver award at the London International Awards, for his Pure FM commercial.
He also has a big interest in documentary and recently finished after “Buffalo Forever” his fourth film together with Victoria Deluxe “Blij dat ik jou heb”.
He also likes operating the camera and knows his way around the edit.
He is a big time supporter of the ‚Gantoise’ and a huge cycling fan.
Great admirer of: Nicolas Philibert, Kelly Reichardt, Raymond Depardon, Manu Riche, Benoit Poelvoorde, the Ardenne brothers, Pharaoh Sanders,John Zorn, Greg Lemond, Clint Eastwoord, Alain Platel, The Big Lebowski…
