Golden Film for Gangsterboys

Dutch feature film GANGSTERBOYS has reached the status of Golden Film for more than 100.000 tickets sold after its theatrical release in the Netherlands on February 18, 2010.

The Golden Film Award is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001. The prize is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films. The total number of tickets sold after a film's release determines whether a prize is awarded.

GANGSTERBOYS, directed by Paul Ruven, tells the story Mahmut and Apo, two aspiring rappers that want to be involved in the local mafia. However, the gangster dreams of the two boys do not turn out the way they expect.

GANGSTERBOYS is starring national famous stars Önder Dogan and Yesser Roshdy 'Yes-R', as well as Georgina Verbaan, Jeroen van Koningsbrugge, Mimoun Ouled Radi and Beau van Erven Dorens.

GANGSTERBOYS is produced by René Huybrechtse (THE PREACHER). Independent Films handles theatrical distribution in the Netherlands. GANGSTERBOYS is currently running in 39 theatres across the Netherlands.
