Jonah Primiano is a filmmaker based in Los Angeles. His practice centers on deconstructing media to reveal meaning, taking the form of short animated films and seamless loops. He is interested in materiality, indexicality, and the relationship between culture, image, and signification.
His films have screened in the US and abroad at the Slamdance Film Festival, London International Animation Festival, Animateka International Animated Film Festival, Tacoma Film Festival, San Diego Underground Film Festival, New Zealand International Film Festival, and Melbourne International Animation Festival. He is the editor and publisher of the animation magazine Mostly Moving. He will receive his MFA in Experimental Animation from CalArts in May 2021, and previously earned a BFA in animation from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
