ABOUT THE DIRECTOR Peter Monsaert studied language and literature at the Ghent University and afterwards graduated as Master of Audiovisual Arts at the Ghent Royal Academy (KASK). He has developed an artistic career in various disciplines, always exploring the crossover area between film and performance. His cinematic involvement in multimedia theatrical productions eventually provoked him to step onto the stage himself, featuring as an actor in no less than six self-written theatre plays. Offline marks his return to film as an autonomous artistic expression. His rich and multi-faced artistic background and experience constituted a solid basis for this first feature-length theatrical film which marks the beginning of an interesting and challenging new professional career.
