HFM Programme


From September 22–25 2016 Utrecht will once again be the key networking station for the financing of quality independent film. The 29th edition of the Holland Film Meeting will, as in previous years, look to stimulate high levels of co-production activity between many of Europe's leading representatives from the Dutch, European and global finance, production, sales and distribution industries.

This four-day-event, comprising the well-established HFM Co-Production Platform and the Work-in-Progress session, is host to the inaugural BoostNL programme, organized in collaboration with CineMart (International Film Festival Rotterdam). In total 27 projects at different stages of development will be up for assessment by many of Europe’s leading financiers, sales agents, distributors and co-production partners, as well as festival programmers and press.

In addition, the HFM will offer a number of seminars, panels, conferences and debates, a programme of International Screenings and the Digital Film Library.
