Valentina Ferrandes is an experimental filmmaker and media artist from southern Italy.

After a degree in Humanities at Bologna University in 2006, she moved to London where she graduated in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design. In 2008 she was selected for a residency at China Academy of Art.

Interweaving text, sound and archive footage, with a documentary approach to image making, her films and immersive sound works explore issues of displacement as related to geography, landscape and architecture.

Her works have been screened internationally in festivals such as Visions du Reel, European Media Art Festival Osnabruck, DokuFest  Kosovo, Cairo Video Festival, Rencontres Internationales, Alchemy Moving Image Festival, MACRO Rome, 5th Moskow Biennale, Bardo National Museum.

She is based in Berlin.
