Jayce Kolinski

Nonfiction Filmmaker

     Jayce Kolinski is a Milwaukee-raised and based nonfiction filmmaker and photographer. Their work explores our connection to the spaces around our everyday life through diaristic documentaries. The films take on a hybrid form that wanders between personal, cultural, and environmental investigations and stories of landscapes and places. Rooted in personal experience, their films reflect on the hand of the maker and authority of documentary as it relates to truth.  Most of their work explores topics relating to the natural world and our knowledge of it. These works are intertwined by a collage of analog and digital video formats that explore alternative processes to image-making.  The final form for these images comes in short and feature-length films that are distributed primarily through live outdoor screenings that showcase the film in the setting it was created.

    They received a BFA in Film from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts in 2020 during which they founded Milwaukee Nonfiction. Since its founding, Milwaukee Nonfiction has hosted numerous screenings and workshops facilitated to empower local documentary makers.  After college, they created an outdoor screening series about the history of conservation along the Milwaukee River.  This outdoor screening series has collaborated with numerous nonprofit organizations to host events that highlight their first feature films that explore the rich history and biological diversity of the Milwaukee Greenway.  Their films have been exhibited at venues and festivals such as the Milwaukee Underground Film Festival, the Milwaukee Film Festival, and the Chicago Underground Film Festival.
