Last updated by

When the final picture ends and the house lights dim what is left after another enthralling Netherlands Film Festival?

Thousands of satisfied customers that’s for sure who have sat through countless exciting premieres and new films from a myriad of film makers and auteurs.

But what then?

Has this inspired another generation to become film makers or do Utrechters retreat to their homes and put their feet up in front of the TV and begin the nightly trawl through Netflix, their brief sojourn into the wider world of cinema over for another year?

Where are our new film makers? Are they working secretly behind closed doors on computer screens or out and about in the streets finding new ways to present old stories?

Are they at Film School or are they self taught, sharing and learning new techniques through osmosis with like minded friends.

Where can they show their films, is there an outlet for them?

What does a young film maker have to do to get their big break?

Does it involve following the business model of big film or can they become Pirate film makers working in the shadows and delivering excellence to an audience of  whom?

It’s all very well having one of Europe’s top film festivals, but what is the legacy?

So many questions, I hope you can provide some answers.

If you know get in touch.

If you are a film maker looking for your breakthrough let us know.
