Fern Silva (b. 1982, USA/Portugal) uses moving image to produce a sonic and cinematographic language for the hybrid mythologies of globalism.

He has curated film screenings at venues including the Nightingale Cinema, Gallery 400, Co-Prosperity Sphere, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and has taught moving image at the University of Illinois Chicago, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Brooklyn College. He was listed as one of the Top 25 Filmmakers for the 21st Century in Film Comment Magazine’s Avant-Garde Filmmakers Poll, is the recipient of the Gus Van Sant Award from the 49th Ann Arbor Film Festival as well as grand prizes from the 2015 Curtas Belo Horizonte and 25FPS Film Festivals.
