Talent en Route

Talent en Route is an initiative of NFF to support promising directors and producers from the Netherlands in their future international careers.

For Talent en Route NFF selects Dutch directors and producers who have been active in the industry for a few years and offers them a custom-made programme in which they will meet the (international) professionals attending the NFF.

The talents will receive pitch coaching, are introduced to the (inter)national industry and will participate in all activities of the NFF Professionals Programme.

There is no application process for Talent en Route; the festival’s selection committee makes their annual selection based on their knowledge of the developments and trends in the Dutch AV industry.

EYE International interviewed this years’ participants. Read the interview with director Aiman Hassani, director Ashgan El-Hamus, producer Chris Stenger and producer Tom van Blommestein.


The HFM festival programme will be from Thursday September 30 to Saturday October 2, 2021.
