Creative Belgium & MassiveMusic Present: Through Her Lens, How a Director’s Work is Shaped by a Woman’s Perspective

We invite you to explore the work and perspective of directors Charlotte De Cort, Ines Vansteenkiste-Muylle and Nina Aaldering. During this night we will discuss how the female gaze is able to frame stories through a different lens and the nuances of the role their identity plays in their work.

We will dive deeper in how each of them found their style and how they balance working for a brand with their creative vision. What inspires them, and what can we learn from their experiences in the industry? 

Ready for our top-notch director’s line-up?

MassiveMusic's recap

Charlotte De Cort

Belgian born, Brussels based writer and director, driven towards close skins, fragile looks and tactile body movements to trigger the viewer’s senses.


Her hunger for empathy, sensuality and enrichment – experiences she hopes to translate to her audience - has also driven her to create her musical short film LIQUID LOVE (2022), made for the Belgian band Intergalactic Lovers, and her fiction short film UNGODLY (2023).


As a writer also co-written coming of age series ‘SEASON OF SEX’ for VRT and she is currently creating her own fiction series in line with her filmic approach.


She is also an artistic researcher at RITCS, digging deeper in her practice by studying the female gaze in regards to the dancing body in film (BGIRL BADLI).

Ines Vansteenkiste-Muylle

Belgian photographer and director who is passionate about creating images conveying the strength and fragility of people. Ines Combines her interest in fashion with socially engaged subjects.


Her directing debut (2021) was a project where she searched for common elements, like love, in our polarized society. The short film was about what love means for a non-binary person who is embedded in the LGBTQ+ community. It got an award in London and was shown in Amsterdam and Milan.


She went to Curacao and Surinam for De Volkskrant to learn about the colonial history of The Netherlands and got inspired by the Caribbean beauty of humans there.


Most of Ines' recent projects have one theme in common: community and what it is about. Her projects are a fusion of documentary and fashion work.  


Nina Aaldering

Amsterdam based director Nina studied Media & Entertainment Management and at the Hallo Academy for applied creativity.


Shortly after, she started working as a copywriter in advertising. But quickly realized that her true passion was being a director.


Her style is an elegant and colorful mix of femininity and cinematic flair with a fashion touch. Always on the lookout for unique faces and characters that will intrigue the audience, Nina loves contrasts.


Her soft imagery is always balanced with an aesthetic edge that delivers bold and modern images.
