A dream comes true
The kick-off meeting is a great success. Six ambitious new filmmakers from throughout the Netherlands and even from across the border have gathered at the headquarters of CineSud – some of them here for the first time, others having been in touch with the organisation before, but all are here with the same destination in mind: Cannes. More specifically so, Cannes Film Festival – the big dream of everyone who has ever even thought of creating a film. The red carpet, exclusive showings, famous directors, producers and actors… Need I say more?
Obviously, everyone seems more than excited to be part of the selected New Dutch Talents that will be sent to Cannes in a month to present the films they worked on at the Market Screening and the Marché du Film. Cannes-veteran Remy Kooi jokes that he intends to drink a lot and party even more once he gets there – an opinion that’s clearly shared by the other attendees but as soon as the meeting starts, the directors and producers reveal their true intentions.
