Strong Dutch presence at Chicago IFF

October 3, 2013

No less than nine film productions from the Netherlands have been selected for the upcoming edition of the Chicago International Film Festival.

In the Main Competition will be screened David Verbeek’s 4th feature film How to Describe a Cloud in the presence of the filmmaker, and also the German/Turkish/Dutch co-production Lifelong directed by Asli Özge. Borgman by Alex van Warmerdam, which has been very successful since its world premiere at the Cannes International Film Festival and is the Dutch entry to the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, is selected for the After Dark Competition. It’s All So Quiet by Nanouk Leopold is presented in the Reel Women section and is eligible for the Q-Hugos Award.

Several films will also be screened in non-competitive programmes. Alex Pitstra’s debut feature Die Welt is part of the Spotlight Africa and the director is scheduled to attend the festival. And the minority Dutch co-productions Heli by Amat Escalante, which also had its world premiere at Cannes, and Tanta Agua by Ana Guevara and Leticia Jorge are included in Cinema of the Americas.

Finally, two award winning short animated films will be presented in Chicago: Chopper by Lars Damoiseaux & Frederik Palmaers and The Lonely Bones by filmmaker/artist Rosto.

The 49th Chicago International Film Festival takes place October 10 – 24: www.chicagofilmfestival.com
