At JaJa Film Productions we believe that people can be moved to pursue their goals or to help others to pursue their goals. We do so by telling gripping and inspiring stories focussing on sports, social issues and human rights, that will open people’s eyes. We produce documentary films, feature films, 1-minute films, corporate films and photo exhibits.
JaJa Film Productions was founded by Jamillah van der Hulst and Conrad Alleblas in 2012. Their eye for appealing stories, creativity, organizational skills, large network, and extensive work and life experience provide a strong basis for the JaJa Film Productions productions.
JaJa Film Productions has developed an outstanding track record of award-winning productions. All our independently produced documentary and feature films have been awarded prizes such as the 2019 documentary film Streetkids United 3 – The Road To Moscow (Prix du Jury at Côte d’Azur Sport Film Festival FICTS) and the 2017 feature film Dede (14 awards including Grand Jury Prize at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival).
We work together with some of the best filmmakers from all over the world. Our works are distributed through (FIAPF accredited competitive) film festivals, special screenings, cinemas, broadcasters, online platforms, inflight entertainment and DVD & Blu-ray.
Jamillah van der Hulst
director & producer
Jamillah van der Hulst founds JaJa Film Productions in 2012 after a career in communications working for international NGOs. As a producer of feature and documentary films Jamillah rapidly develops an interest in directing films. She directs some well received 1-minute films and the documentary series Women with a Mission, which is broadcasted by TLC.
In 2018 Jamillah delivers her first long documentary film, Fighting for Life, as a director. Her directorial debut is awarded the Peace and Sport Documentary Prize at the prestigious SPORTEL Awards in Monaco and the Guirlande d’Honneur at the Sport Movies & TV – Milano International FICTS Fest.
As a director and a producer, Jamillah is driven by bringing inspirational and eye opening stories to the audience. Her stories are about people who try to get the best out of themselves or who try to be meaningful to others and about environmental issues that are crucial for the future of mankind. Her films will touch you, give you something to think about or get you in motion.

producer & director
Conrad Alleblas starts with filmmaking after founding JaJa Film Productions together with Jamillah van der Hulst in 2012. In the preceding two and a half decades, he first focused on a career as a top athlete (speed skating and road cycling) and later as a sports manager and entrepreneur.
As a producer Conrad proves himself as a strong fundraiser and creative organizer with an eye for legal and financial affairs. His entrepreneurial and managerial background are the key to the success that Conrad has as a director of corporate films.
Conrad is driven by making films that inspire or inform the audience to a level they haven’t experienced before. He loves to work on productions from A to Z and to collaborate with a motivated crew and cast and involved funders and clients. He is realistic in his approach and always goes the extra mile to make things happen.
