Van Rijckeghem founded the production outfit A PRIVATE VIEW in 1994 and runs it with producer Dries Phlypo. Together they have produced over 20 feature films. Phlypo also (co-)produced several short films including the Academy Award nominated films Tanghi Argentini (2007) and Na Wéwé (2010). A PRIVATE VIEW has been responsible for big hits in Belgium – and abroad – such as Hans Van Nuffel’s Oxygen, which won the Grand Prize and the Ecumenical Jury Prize at the 2010 Montreal World Film Festival, and Moscow, Belgium, winner of three awards at Cannes in 2008. Van Rijckeghem has recently finished a script called Vincent and the End of the World to be directed by Christophe Van Rompaey (Moscow, Belgium, Lena), which they will begin shooting next year. A PRIVATE VIEW is currently also developing Marry Me, the second feature by Turkish-Belgian director Kadir Balci (Turquaze).
