DZIGA, creative film platform, based in Nijmegen since 1995 (NL) produces creative films and supports  filmmakers, artists, media- and multi discipline makers in the realisation of their films, documentaries and video-art. DZIGA initiates filmprojects where experienced filmmakers and makers in the midst of their carreers work together. In this way we create opportunities to develope films and video-art with room for experiment.

The most recent productions are the interactive filmproject on the German artist Joseph Beuys : by filmmaker Ivana Smudja. This is a pilot with more filmportraits of diverse artist by other filmdirectors to come. The documentary The Spirit of the Pierson NOW by director Paul Ruven will have his première in Februari 2023.
