Dutch Femmes travelling to Transilvania
Various international film festivals have noticed the feature films made by women from the Netherlands.
For this year's edition of the International Film Festival Berlin four exceptional films made by Dutch female directors were selected (Calimucho, Can Go Through Skin, Katia’s Sister and Winter Silence). Now, the Transilvania International Film Festival is picking up the trend with its 'Dutch Female Directors Program', showcasing Atlantis by Digna Sinke (producer Waterland Film & TV), Calimucho by Eugenie Jansen (producer Circe Films), Can Go Through Skin by Esther Rots (producer Rots Filmwerk / NFI Productions), Katia’s Sister by Mijke de Jong (producer Keyman Film), Left by Froukje Tan (producer Fighting Windmills), Winter Silence by Sonja Wyss (producer SNG Film) and Wolfsbergen by Nanouk Leopold (producer Circe Films).
The Dutch feature length documentary Carmen Meets Borat by Mercedes Stalenhoef (producer Pieter van Huystee Film) will be part of the festival's 'Roma' program, while last year’s Dutch Academy Award Entry Dunya & Desie by Dana Nechushtan (producer Lemming Film) will screen at the festival’s children’s section, together with The Letter For The King by Pieter Verhoeff (producer Eyeworks Egmond Film and TV) and Minoes by Vincent Bal (producer Bosbros. Film & TV Productions).
Finally, the documentaries Black Eyes by Jan Bosdriesz (producer SNG Film) and Come Back Kate by Quirine Racké and Helena Muskens (producer Snow White Films) have been selected for the documentary section of the festival in Transilvania.
