Moritz Schneider - CUT-UP, Switzerland
Co-founded CUT-UP, a festival distribution service for short films.
Born in Basel, Switzerland. After graduating in Economics and Communications at the University of Zurich, Moritz Schneider worked in various positions at Swiss film festivals and produced several award-winning student short films. He decided to start CUT-UP in 2015, as he didn’t find the service he was looking for. Since then the company has taken care of the festival run of more than 250 short films from over 45 countries, including BAFTA winners and Oscar nominees. In 2018 Moritz Schneider and his co-founder Andrea Sponring started FestivalWhizz, an online tool to create and manage festival strategies.
