LOFT Platinum Film

Dutch feature film LOFT (directed by Antoinette Beumer) has reached the status of Platinum Film for more than 400.000 tickets sold, since its theatrical release in the Netherlands on December 16, 2010.

For the first time a Dutch director reaches the status of Platinum Film twice within one year. Antoinette Beumer's first feature film THE HAPPY HOUSEWIFE reached the status of Platinum Film on May 25, 2010.

Five married men have secret rendez-vous with their mistresses in a shared penthouse. This secret deal seems flawless, until one morning they stumble upon the body a young woman. None of the five men knows who she is, where she comes from or how she found her way into the penthouse. As the story evolves, they become increasingly suspicious of one another until it becomes very clear that they have been anything but open with one another. 

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.

LOFT is produced by Millstreet Films, Woestijnvis and Pupkin Film in coproduction with BNN. The film is distributed in the Netherlands by Independent Films.
