Porfotto Student Oscars nominee

14 August 2020

Dutch Graduation film Porfotto (2019) made it to the finals of the Student Academy in the category International Narrative Student  Film. The film is directed by Edson da Conceicao and written by Bodil Matheeuwsen. The film is a graduation film from the Netherlands Film Academy.

In Porfotto, three friends Em, Moreno and Kyon have raided a local money laundering practice in Rotterdam. They feel like kings and go home with a good feeling. In one night they find out that money is not enough to solve their problems.

Porfotto is produced by Yasmin van Dorp, Tessel Jonkers and Nicky Onstenk and has already won several awards, including Best Dutch Short Film at the DBUFF Festival and Best Student Live Action Film 2020 at the Silk Road International Film Festival.

In 2017 Marit Weerheijm won a Student Academy Award for her graduation film When Grey is a Colour.

Mid-September the Academy will announce the winners of the gold, silver or bronze medals at the Student Academy Awards.
