Talent en Route selection 2021

Five highly promising Dutch film talents will step into the festival’s spotlight (September 25th – October 2nd) under the umbrella of “Talent en Route”. The festival’s annual initiative supports writer-directors, producers, and other emerging professionals from the Netherlands in their future international careers.

This year’s selection comprises of writer-directors Joosje Duk (in this year’s Golden Calf Competition with web series Almost Starring), Zara Dwinger (in this year’s Golden Calf Competition with her mid-length film The Girl Who Was Cursed), and Kevin Osepa (in last year’s Golden Calf and Debut Competitions with the short Watamula); as well as documentary producer Jasper Boon (recently responsible for Guido Hendrikx’ A Man and a Camera, in this year’s Golden Calf Competition for Best Short Documentary), and – for the first time in this programme – short film distributor Hidde de Vries (whose company, Kapitein Kort, has had films premiere at the international film festivals of Cannes, Berlin, Rotterdam, and many others).
