ABOUT CANTO Cristal film
8 February 2012
Dutch documentary film ABOUT CANTO, directed by Ramon Gieling, is awarded with a Cristal Film. The film reached the status of Cristal Film for more than 10.000 tickets sold, since its theatrical release in the Netherlands.
The film is produced by Eyeworks Film & TV Drama in co-production with Prime Time (Belgium) & Buddhist Broadcasting Foundation (NL).
ABOUT CANTO is an inventive mosaic about the dramatic influence that the modern classical piece Canto Ostinato, by Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt, has had on the lives of a number of people. Like true love, music can bring about this radical change. This composition continues to do so.
The Golden/Platinum/Diamond 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 (100.000, 400.000 and 1.000.000) after a film’s release determines whether a prize is awarded. The Cristal Film is awarded to a Dutch documentary with more than 10.000 tickets sold.
