Dominique Snyers

Director Biography

Dom studied engineering in Belgium and at the Stanford University in California. He holds a ph’D in computer science from the Caen University in France. Besides his work as University teacher, entrepreneur and creator of IT start-ups, Dom has been accompanying numerous adventurers, often younger than him, into the wilderness, on both horizontal as well as vertical environment. He set up the association, a community of adventurers in order to encourage the dream of adventure and its autonomous realisation in the cheapest way as possible thanks to the community. His main motivation has always been teaching and knowledge transfer. That is also why he is now fully diving into film realisation to try finding answers to the following question: « Why in our modern society that is everyday becoming more and more virtual and is openly rejecting any notion of risks, do we see more and more young people engaging themselves into risky adventures to reconnect with the wilderness?”
