Jules Rosskam (b.1979 Illinois) is an award-winning filmmaker, educator and interdisciplinary artist interested in liminal spaces: the space between male and female, between documentary and fiction, between moving image and still. His interdisciplinary practice investigates the means by which we construct individual and collective histories and identities. Recent screenings include the British Film Institute, Leather Archives and Museum, Arsenal Berlin, Filmhuis Cavia, Halwalls Contemporary Art Center, and the Queens Museum of Art. Recent residencies include PLAYA (Summer Lake), ACRE (Steuben), Yaddo (Saratoga Springs), and ISSUE Project Room (Brooklyn). Recent grants include the LEF Foundation’s Moving Image Fund, Crossroads Grant Foundation, The Funding Exchange, Illinois Arts Council Grant, Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice Grant. His work has been published in Women and Performance, Transgender Studies Quarterly, and Make/Shift Magazine. Rosskam holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Film, Video, New Media, 2008). He has been a guest lecturer at various academic institutions, and is currently Assistant Professor of Visual Arts at University of Maryland Baltimore County.
