Today we receive the very sad news that our longtime friend and fellow member Brent Klinkum passed away quite suddenly while hiking. Brent will be remembered as a passionate person, brimming with wit, who loved cinema culture in all its formulations. In 2012, with great esprit and an unusual approach, Brent curated the retrospective Breaking Ground for sixpackfilm, an appreciation of Austrian experimental film history over the past 60 years. It is an abrupt departure, very painful for all who knew him. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the relatives and friends.
Brent Klinkum (1960-2022)
