Imagine NL

The Imagine NL programme is created by and for professionals. It turns the spotlight onto Dutch and Flemish filmmakers and provides them with an opportunity to realise their dream projects. Just like in the first four editions, Imagine once again offers filmmakers a chance to get their film project off the ground by entering a pitch contest, the winner of which gets to participate in the Frontières co-production market in Montréal. Also this year: a reading of Dick Maas’ screenplay of Amsterdamned, organised by writers collective Winchester McFly and performed by an ensemble of… actors from Rotterdam! Does Tom Bombardil from Lord of the Rings really exist? The people behind The Sustainable Sunshine Company think so. They went looking for the real-life Tom and will present their first results to the Imagine audience. And last but not least at Imagine NL: Nieuw Nederlands Peil, the by now traditional showcase of short films. Now in two blocks!
