To guarantee the highest-quality and most eclectic line-up of projects at the 2012 Netherlands Production Platform (NPP) we have extended the submission deadline to August 1 2012.
During the event, each project will be presented to a selected group of top international industry professionals from the production, finance, sales and distribution sectors. All feature film projects will be suitable for co-production, of a minimum 90’ duration, and will have local financial support in place. Selection includes travel and accommodation for 3 nights in Utrecht’s luxurious Karel V hotel, covering 2 delegates per project.
The impressive list of films that started their careers at Utrecht is a testimony to the quality both of the selections and the international financiers and co-producers invited to attend, and includes recent successes such as Michel R Ruskam’s BULLHEAD (nominated for 2012 Foreign-language Oscar), the late Seyfi Teoman’s OUR GRAND DESPAIR (Berlin Competition 2011) and Martin Koolhoven’s box-office smash-hit WINTER IN WARTIME (2008).
The quality of the projects is reflected in the prizes that are awarded annually to pitching producers:
- The Cineco Digital Post Production Award
- The Binger Award
- The Filmmore Innovation Cinema Prize
