BoostNL is the collaboration between the Netherlands Film Festival (NFF) and International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), offering projects in development and post-production an entirely tailor-made programme, starting at NFF in September and culminating at IFFR in January. By combining the two festivals’ forces and resources, and by molding the programme around the projects’ individual goals and wishes, BoostNL provides the selected participants with strong industry exposure and top-notch inspiration for the advancement of their projects.


Previous editions have included the expertise and inspiration of such renowned experts as Susan Korda (editor, USA), Jane Tattersall (sound designer, Canada), Anna Ciennik (script expert, France), Sergina Stavroulaki (Heretic Outreach, Greece), Mathias Noschis (Alphapanda, Germany), Silje Nikoline Glimsdal (TrustNordisk, Denmark), Kate Leys (script expert, UK), Fiona Crombie (production/costume designer, UK), Damiaan Denys (psychologist, Belgium), and Mijke de Jong (film director, the Netherlands).


The 2020 programme and project selection will be communicated over the course of this summer. Applications are now closed.
