De Ontmoeting: Part III

For the second time, Submarine Channel is a partner in the Dutch initiative De Ontmoeting (The Meeting) that aims to connect upcoming directors with film studios and broadcasters. Creators are invited to submit proposals for a short film, documentary, animation, or interactive before 1 November 2017!


Calling all NL-based creators: send in your projects.
Deadline November 1.

Together with the other partners in De Ontmoeting  VPRO DorstNL Film and Corrino Media Group we’re looking for talented and original young filmmakers with a great idea for a short film, documentary, animation or interactive. If you’re based in The Netherlands and your concept is selected, you’ll receive a contribution of €5k to make it, provided you crowdfund €5k yourself (with the support and advise of Cinecrowd). You can apply here:

This is what we made last year

For the previous edition of De Ontmoeting, Submarine Channel picked a proposal by Amos Mulder from over 80 submissions. We guided Mulder during the making of his film, offering feedback and support where we could. The film turned out beautifully. Submarine Channel is distributing WORD! It is currently touring film and animation festivals worldwide and will be released online at the end of 2018. All in all the whole process was a very positive experience for us, so we’re in for another round!
