NL-based creators: send in your projects

Submarine Channel is a partner in De Ontmoeting (The Meeting) – a very cool initiative that aims to connect upcoming directors with studios and broadcasters. Creators are invited to submit proposals for a short film, documentary, animation, VR or interactive before 1 November 2018!


Calling all NL-based creators: send in your projects.
Deadline November 1, 2018.

Together with 7 other partners in De Ontmoeting we’re looking for talented and original young filmmakers with a great idea for a short film, documentary, virtual reality film, 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).

Go to for details on how to submit.


Previous projects we supported

For the second edition of De Ontmoeting, Submarine Channel picked a proposal by Amos Mulder from over 80 submissions. We offered Mulder feedback and support during the making of his film. It is now touring festivals worldwide and will be released online in 2019.

In 2018, we supported Manfred – a 360 degree puppet film for kids by Dutch animator Gatze Zonneveld, which will premiere during the Netherlands Film Festival 2018. Another great project made possible by De Ontmoeting and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.
