NFF Archive

You are now in the NFF Archive. The archive contains contains information on film, TV and interactive productions that were screened at past festival editions.

Sometimes, older films can also be found at the Eye Film Museum or the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.

The starting point of the experimental film Confidential is a series of improvised sessions for cello, violin, voice and tape. Director Frans Zwartjes, who also operated the camera and wrote the music, compressed the result into a coherent sequence. One of the things he does with his camera is scan the images on a screen. A wood, women's faces and a slowly moving woman with a Japanese mask are recurring elements.
