Curt Heiner currently resides in Denver, Colorado and has called Colorado’s Front Range home for the entirety of his young and adult life. He received a BFA in Film Studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder and now pursues the medium of film in a variety of facets, primarily through the 16mm format. The majority of his work has been collaborative and fleeting in nature; working mainly with musicians and sound artists to create constantly evolving live projection performances. Much of his work is rooted in expanded cinema and installation, exhibiting film both within and without the guise of the standardized theatrical environment. Curt also works as a projectionist for the Denver Film Society where he helps to keep the public exhibition of celluloid formats viable, celebrated, and existent alongside the now more standard digital presentations.
