October 25, 2011
Two Dutch feature films have reached the status of Golden Film for more than 100.000 tickets sold: ALL STARS 2: OLD STARS by Jean van de Velde and BODY LANGUAGE by Jeffrey Elmont.
ALL STARS 2: OLD STARS received the Golden Film Award within just ten days after its theatrical release in the Netherlands on October 13, 2011. Jean van de Velde’s sequel to his 1997 soccer-based tragicomedy hit is about seven friends who have played football together for the same amateur team since they were young boys. The friends go on a road trip to Barcelona to attend the wedding of one them.
ALL STARS 2: OLD STARS is produced by M&B Film and All Yours Film in co-prduction with Dutch broadcaster VARA. Independent Film is the distributing the film in the Netherlands.
Over 100.000 people have also seen the Dutch dance film BODY LANGUAGE. The film tells the story of five dancers, from different dance crews, who travel to New York although their subsidy to participate in a competition is canceled at the last moment. They find themselves in the city without money, without plans, without their own crew, all they can do is dance.
BODY LANGUAGE is produced by Flinck Film, Launch Works, Johan Nijenhuis& Co and RTL Entertainment and has been released in the Netherlands on October 6 by A- Film Distribution.
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 after a film’s release determines whether a prize is awarded.
