Line-up Oberhausen 2010

From the Netherlands at Oberhausen

The Dutch short films WE ARE BOYS, MERLE, JACCO'S FILM and PLANK are selected for the Kids and Youth Competition of the 56th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. Additionally the short films GIRLFRIENDS by Sabina Maria van der Linden en Nina Yuen, INSTRUCTION by Wendelien van Oldenborgh, RESTAURATIEWAGENS by Arianne Olthaar and WINGS FOR DOGS by C─âlin Dan will compete in Oberhausen's International Competition.

The festival will take place from April 29 – May 4, 2010.

Oberhausen was founded in 1954 and is considered to be the oldest and one of the most important short film festival in the world. Directors including Werner Herzog, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese and Wim Wenders have participated in the festival.

The short documentary WE ARE BOYS, directed by Tomas Kaan and produced by 100% Halal, is a film about friendship but especially about what it means to be a boy. The film premiered during the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam IDFA in 2009 and was selected for the Prix Jeunesse.

MERLE by Hilt Lochten, produced by Dutch broadcaster KRO, shows eleven year old Merle who has a passion for sculpting. Out of more than 300 submissions, MERLE won the NHK Japan Prize for the best educational children’s programme of the year 2009.
Director Daan Bakker graduated with JACCO’S FILM from the Netherlands Film & Television Academy in 2009. Filled with enthusiasm, Jacco talks about his friends, girlfriends, interests, everyday activities and, – not to be forgotten – the wonders of nature. He doesn’t seem to care that his parents are continually quarrelling: Jacco decides how the world works, but how long can he keep it up? JACCO’S FILM was selected amongst others to compete in the Generation Kplus Competition of the Film Festival in Berlin in February 2010.

In the short documentary PLANK, directed by Billy Pols for Hazazah Pictures, fifteen year old Dutch-Moroccan Nassim Gummaz puts everything at stake to become the best skateboarder in the world. PLANK is selected as well for the International Competition of Aspen Short Fest in the United States.
