Final first selection Videoland Academy

Fiction projects De Indringer, Fantoom, De Sterfshow and Dagen dat ik je Vergeet are definitively selected for the first Videoland Academy.

The final selection of the fiction projects of the first edition of the Videoland Academy has been completed. Four projects under the theme Grounded Sci-Fi are entering the next phase in which the script is written and where the makers are matched to a producer to further develop their films. The realized films will have their premiere during the Netherlands Film Festival 2021 and will subsequently be shown at Videoland.

The plans

The following plans have been selected for the first edition of the Videoland Academy:

  • De Indringer- Jan Verdijk
  • Fantoom - Leon Golterman
  • De Sterfshow - Johan Paul de Vrijer, Timo Ottevanger, Edson Da Conceicao, Remy Mulder, Wladimir van Heester
  • Dagen dat ik je Vergeet - Bodil Matheeuwsen

Antoinette Beumer, Head of Drama Videoland: "The Videoland Academy is incredibly proud that we have been able to select four diverse fiction plans within the Grounded Sci-Fi theme. Although the plans are very different, the common denominator is that they are all very good at Videoland's unique and quirky character."

In addition to the four fiction projects, the True Crime documentary triptych will be announced in September, which will be made possible with the support of the Videoland Academy.

You can submit your plan for the second Videoland Academy until 15 July 2020
