Impressive Dutch line up at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival
Three Dutch films have been selected for the upcoming edition of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival: How to Describe a Cloud by David Verbeek, The Deflowering of Eva van End by Michiel ten Horn and Wrong Time Wrong Place by John Appel.
The 48th edition of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival takes place 28th June – 6th July 2013 in Prague, Czech Republic. The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival is ranked among the most prestigious world film festivals and is considered the most important film event in Central and Eastern Europe.
How to Describe a Cloud, directed by David Verbeek, is selected as part of the Forum of Independents Competition.
The film is produced by Conijn Film and tells the story of Liling, a
girl who is looking after her blind mother and is confronted with the
troublesome co-existence of scientific realism and supernatural
Michiel ten Horn, director of The Deflowering of Eva van End, is selected as one of Variety's Ten European Directors To Watch, a special program at the Karlovy Vary festival. This selection is presented by Variety in cooperation with European Film Promotion (EFP) and the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVIFF). At Karlovy Vary, the ten selected filmmakers will take the audiences on a cinematic trip throughout Europe and illustrate the diversity of what young European cinema currently has to offer. The MEDIA Programme of the EU and the ten participating EFP member organisations are supporting the event.
The Deflowering of Eva van End is Michiel ten Horn’s first feature film and is produced by Pupkin Film. The Deflowering of Eva van End is a tragicomedy about the Van End family who, after the arrival of an impossibly perfect German exchange student, can no longer imagine how they ever managed to live with their imperfect selves.
Documentary film Wrong Time Wrong Place, directed by John Appel, will be screening Out of Competition. Using the 2011 Norwegian island shootings as a starting point, Wrong Time Wrong Place
shows the role of (sometimes absurd) coincidence in tragedy. How a
sequence of small, trivial happenings can mark the thin line between
life and death. Two minutes earlier or later can be of critical
importance. The film is produced by Cobos Films.
