More than one hundred international screenings for Dutch documentary Flying Anne

Dutch youth documentary Flying Anne, directed by Catherine van Campen, has been selected for more than one hundred international film festivals and screenings, since it’s international premiere at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) in 2010.

By now the film has been screened in forty different countries. Especially in North America the film did well and was selected for 25 film festivals and won more than ten awards.
In total, the film was awarded twenty times at prestigious international festivals in Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, Boston, Belgrade, Nyon, Florence and Berlin.

Flying Anne is produced by Zuidenwind Filmproductions for NCRV Doc Junior and is funded by the Media Fund, the Mental Health Fund and the Dutch Foundation for Disabled Children.

Flying Anne is about a beautiful 11-year-old girl named Anne. The kind of girl you can’t take your eyes off. And the longer you look, the more you see her ‘tics’. Anne suffers from Gilles de la Tourette’s syndrome. This makes her body do things she doesn’t want, such as suddenly spinning around or licking everything. Anne sometimes finds it hard to cope with her illness, especially in school. She’s afraid that others will bully her or laugh at her. Anne therefore tries to keep her tics in check, although that isn’t easy. She prefers ‘flying’ through life, so you won’t notice anything. When flying, she’s at her best. The youth documentary Flying Anne shows how Anne lives life with her tics. Tics that, in the end, she doesn’t want to lose either...
