Knol takes reins at Talent Campus

Program manager joins from IDFA

BERLIN — Matthijs Wouter Knol has been named program manager at the Berlinale Talent Campus.

Knol, who began his post this month, has worked as a producer for Amsterdam-based production company Pieter van Huystee Film, where he served as head of development since 2004. He has also overseen the co-production market and the IDFAcademy training program at the Intl. Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.

Knol will be responsible for the general direction of the Campus, in collaboration with Christine Troestrum, who has been part of the Campus management team since 2004.

“Connecting young talents eager to learn with experienced filmmakers willing to share their knowledge is what really makes my clock tick,” said Knol.

Dorothee Wenner, who directed the previous two editions of the Campus, is stepping down to focus on filmmaking but remains involved with the Berlinale as a member of the selection committee for the Forum sidebar as a delegate for sub-Saharan Africa and India as well as in assisting with the Talent Campus program.

Next year’s Talent Campus will focus on narrative turning points as its main focus. Under the motto, “Suddenly, It All Happened — The Turning Point in Close-Up,” the event will look at how successful films and compelling stories thrive on turning points, events that give a plot a new and critical direction.

Organizers are accepting applications for the Berlinale Talent Campus through Oct. 8.
