Documentary producers from the Dutch-speaking part of Benelux – The Netherlands and Flanders – will be teaming up this Wednesday to pitch the region as an attractive co-production partner. The event marks the first joint outing for the two producers’ associations, DPN (Documentary Producers Netherlands) and Flanders Doc. Among other things, the presentation, which is part of the IDFA Forum, will look at funding opportunities available in both The Netherlands and Flanders.
This year’s IDFA features a number of co-productions with minority Flemish input: The Gatekeepers by Dror Moreh (co-prod: Anna Van der Wee for Wild Heart Productions) in Feature-length Documentaries competition; Mussels In Love by Willemiek Kluijfhout (pictured left) (co-prod: Bram Crols and Mark Daems for Associate Directors); Anton Corbijn Inside Out by Klaartje Quirijns (co-prod: Savage Film); Guerilla Grannies – How To Live In This World by Ike Bertels (co-prod: Ellen De Waele for Serendipity Films); and The Only Son by Simonka de Jong (co-prod: Eric Goossens for Off World).
Five documentaries as well as two projects from Flanders have been selected for this year’s 25th IDFA. The five docs are Rain by Gerard-Jan Claes and Olivia Rochette, The Sound of Belgium by Jozef Devillé, Expecting by Fabio Wuytack, Snake Dance by Manu Riche and Patrick Marnham, and The Wave by Sarah Vanagt and Katrien Vermeire. Projects from two Flemish documentary makers –The Shadow World by Johan Grimonprez and White Elephants by Kristof Bilsen – are also selected for the IDFA Forum.
Rain by Gerard-Jan Claes and Olivia Rochette features in the First Appearance competition and follows a ballet production from initial auditions right up to opening night. Producer is Bart Van Langendonck for Savage Film. In Expecting (pictured left), which is selected for the IDFA Panorama, director Fabio Wuytack portrays an Afghan-Kosovan refugee couple as they struggle through their daily lives. The Sound of Belgium by Jozef Devillé and produced by Visualantics is part of the Music Documentary competition and explores the rich, untold story of Belgian dance music.
Five documentaries from Flanders as well as five co-productions are selected for this year's 25th edition of IDFA (14-25 November). The five are: Rain by Gerard-Jan Claes and Olivia Rochette, The Sound of Belgium by Jozef Devillé, Expecting by Fabio Wuytack, Snake Dance by Manu Riche, and The Wave by Sarah Vanagt and Katrien Vermeire. Projects from two Flemish documentary makers, The Shadow World by Johan Grimonprez and White Elephants (working title) by Kristof Bilsen, can also be found in the IDFA.
Rain by Gerard-Jan Claes and Olivia Rochette features in the First Appearance competition for first documentaries. On 25 May 2011, the world-renowned Ballet de l’Opéra national de Paris presented Rain, in its first ever performance by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. Olivia Rochette and Gerard-Jan Claes followed the rehearsal process from the auditions to the opening performance. Producer is Bart Van Langendonck for Savage Film.
This week, the Open Doek Festival (20 – 29 April) kicked off in Turnhout, while Leuven is getting ready for the 8th edition of the International Documentary Festival DOCVILLE (27 April – 5 May). Both programs house a large selection of Flemish titles, ranging from Daniel Lambo’s Dry Branches of Iran to Berlinale attendees Anton Corbijn Inside Out andAsparragos.
For the eighth consecutive year, DOCVILLE highlights the best documentaries and awards prizes in various sections. This year, Flanders is well represented in its national competition with more than ten short and feature-length film titles.
Klaartje Quirijns’s documentary Anton Corbijn Inside Out has been selected for the 62nd edition of the Berlinale International Film Festival (9 – 19 Febr). The Documentary will screen in the ‘Berlin Special’ section of the fest which also hosts films by Werner Herzog and Kevin Macdonald. Flemish co-producer of the documentary is Brussels-based production outfit Savage Film which recently scored an Oscar Nomination for Michaël R. Roskam's feature debut Bullhead.
Another Flemish co-production in Berlin is Nicole Van Kilsdonk's Taking Chances, which has been selected for Generation Kplus. Meanwhile Laura Zuallaert's short film Asparragos was picked for the Culinary Cinema section of the fest. The Berlinale screening of Anton Corbijn Inside Out on 17 February will also be the film’s World Premiere. Quirijns states that ‘she always tries to make films about people. Anton is a photographer, but I’ve approached him just as I would one of my characters, be it a weapons dealer, someone who wants to get dictators before a court or someone vying for peace. They are all people fighting a battle, with others, with a political system or as with Anton, with himself.’
