Rothemund talks on viablity of film

Filmmaker to speak at Netherlands Film Festival

German helmer Marc Rothemund will deliver the Variety Militans lecture on Sept. 29, part of the international program of the Netherlands Film Festival in Utrecht.

Best known for breakthrough feature “Sophie Scholl — The Final Days,” Rothemund will speak on the lecture’s regular topic: the position and viability of cinema, as discussed by Dutch film theoretician Menno ter Braak in the 1926 essay “Cinema Militans.”

This is the seventh year Variety has sponsored the lecture. Past speakers include Marion Hansel, Istvan Szabo and Agnieszka Holland.

The international program also includes the Netherlands Production Platform, from Sept. 27 to 30, with nine Dutch and 13 European feature projects pitching. Domestic projects vie for a Euros 5,000 ($7,000) development prize.

Running from Sept 26. to Oct. 6, fest opens with the Dutch premiere of Jos Stelling’s “Duska,” a dark comedy that is the Netherlands’ entry for the foreign language Oscar.

Guest of honor is producer and screenwriter Burny Bos, whose BosBros shingle specializes in pics for the youth market. His latest production, “Waar Is Het Paard Van Sinterklaas?” (“Where is Winky’s Horse?”), directed by Mischa Kamp, premieres at the fest.
