Holland Film Meeting to spotlight region's prod'ns

UTRECHT — Helmer Eugenie Jansen’s “Calimucho,” Johan Nijenhuis’ “Floris” and Ineke Smits’ “Mountains at Sea” are among 10 Dutch projects selected for the Netherlands Production Platform, a showcase of films in pre-production.

Platform will be part of the four-day Holland Film Meeting, a sidebar event to the 22nd Netherlands Film Festival (Sept. 25-Oct. 4). Some 80 international producers, financiers and buyers have been invited to the meeting and market event, which will open Sept. 27.

The Holland Film Meeting has served in the past as a showcase for Dutch projects seeking international co-production and as a forum for feisty talks on the state of the industry.

Spirited exchange

Last year’s confab ended with a heated debate on the Dutch government’s film funding policies. With the tax incentive scheme still limping along in a state of confusion, this year’s debate on Dutch film policy is likely to be more lively.

The Holland Film Meeting will wrap Sept. 30 with the 12th edition of the Variety Cinema Militans Lecture, an often-spirited discourse on the industry, this year to be delivered by Indian director Mira Nair.

The Netherlands Production Platform, in its fourth year, is increasingly a barometer of the Dutch industry. This year, four of the 10 projects to be pitched to international producers and financiers are either in English or are multilingual, as Dutch producers try to give their work more international appeal.
