We know, Cannes is already gone, but we actually forgot to mention one important award; the Young Director Award, won by Jonathan Elbers (Second prize in the category ‘European Filmschool’). Earlier this year the ADCN (Dutch Art Directors Club) didn’t think the film was good enough for a Young Talent award, but fortunately the YDA jury judged differently. The concept for this commercial promoting the Dutch Film Academy is quite simple, but the production – all filmed in a studio to substantiate the proposition – allowed Elbers to show all of his skills. It was shot by Thijmen Doornik and produced with the help of the Netherlands Film Academy.
