Greenaway doc gets top-up aid

Netherlands Film Fund picks nine productions

BRUSSELS – Director Peter Greenaway’s art documentary “J’accuse” is among nine film projects to collect Euros 9.6 million ($12.9 million) in aid from the Netherlands Film Fund.

John Turturro’s “1-900,” third in the trio of remakes from the work of late Dutch helmer Theo Van Gogh being produced by Column Productions, is still under consideration for support.

The new scheme, approved by European authorities in July, tops up productions that have found at least 65% of their finance. Nine of the 11 bids were successful, with two decisions pending, the fund announced Aug. 15.

Greenaway’s film, a doc produced by Submarine linked to his “Nightwatching” project, picked up a modest Euros 204,830 ($276,529). Most coin goes to veteran helmers Pieter Verhoeff (“Sunday Boy”) and Ben Sombogaart (Oscar nominated for “Twin Sisters”), who received around Euros 2.4 million ($3.2 million) each.

Verhoeff is adapting bestselling Dutch children’s book “De Brief voor de Koning,” written in the 1960s by Tonke Dragt. Eyeworks Egmond Film & TV produces. Sombogaart’s “Bride Flight,” produced by IdtV Film, tells the story of three young Dutch women who escape the suffocating atmosphere of post-war Holland for new lives in New Zealand.
