THE STRONGEST MAN IN HOLLAND, directed by Mark de Cloe and written by Maarten Lebens and Pieter Bart Korthuis, has been nominated for a Rose d’Or for best TV Movie. The nominations for this prestigious prize have been announced during the Nominees Night last Tuesday in Malaysia. The winners will be awarded on May 10, during the Awards Ceremony at the Rose d’Or Festival (May 6 – 10) in Switzerland.

THE STRONGEST MAN IN HOLLAND is about twelve-year old Luuk, who has never met his father. His mother, who raised Luuk on her own, has always told him the most amazing stories about his father and him being the world’s strongest man. When Luuk attends the local strongest man competition, he meets participant René and believes he has found his dad. When his mother tells him she lied, he decides to find the truth.

Earlier THE STRONGEST MAN IN HOLLAND has won the Prix Europa for Best Television Fiction Programme of the Year 2011 and has been selected for various important international film festivals, such as the Berlin International Film Festival and Sprockets (Toronto).

THE STRONGEST MAN IN HOLLAND is produced by NL Film and sales is handled by Delphis Films.
