In filmmaking there are many interesting, special and beautiful stories that need to be told. These stories are sometimes unknown or on difficult subjects, often making fundraising for talented filmmakers a difficult – if not impossible – task.
These filmmakers are in need of extra support in making their films that they are so passionate about. Support from organisations that appreciate their talent and understand the true meaning of their films.
The Dutch Film Club is just that; a group of corporate representatives and private individuals who have a passion for films and filmmaking and who want to provide support to talented filmmakers worldwide to get the best out of themselves and to enable them to finalize their films.
The long-term objective of the Dutch Film Club is to provide financial support to 4 new film projects on an annual basis.
The Dutch Film Club is a project of the award winning film production house JaJa Film Productions and was kick-started with the support of its founding partners.
The Dutch Film Club provides financial support to talented filmmakers worldwide to get the best out of themselves and to enable them to finalize their films. The support is made possible by the annual contribution of the members of the club.
Members of the Dutch Film Club enjoy a rich benefit package including an annual member event, premieres or special screenings of the films supported, in-depth updates on the progress of the films supported, film accessories packages, and visibility.
The Dutch Film Club’s main objective is to support emerging talented filmmakers to make films with interesting, special and beautiful stories that need to be told. The financial support to these filmmakers might lead to a share in equity in the film and, in a positive scenario, in a share of revenue from the film. This revenue will be fairly split among the members of the club.
