THE DINNER Golden Film

November 21, 2013

Dutch feature film The Dinner, written and directed by Menno Meyjes, has reached the status of Golden Film. Since the film’s official release in the Netherlands on November 7 the number of tickets sold has already reached 100.000.

In The Dinner two couples go out to dinner in a restaurant. They talk about ordinary things, the usual dinner conversation: work, the latest movies, the war in Iraq, holiday plans etc. In the meantime they avoid discussing the one thing of true importance: their children. Because their children have done something horrible, which could potentially destroy their future…
The Dinner had its wolrd premiere at the last edition of the Toronto International Film Festival.

The Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award is awarded when the number of tickets sold after a film’s release is 100.000, 400.000, and 1.000.000 respectively. The prize is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival  and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001 and is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films.

The Dinner is produced by Eyeworks Film & TV Drama. International sales are handled by Medial Luna. The film is distributed in the Netherlands by A-Film Benelux and is screening at 250 cinemas throughout the country.
