Shortcutz 2018

For the fifth year running, we celebrate the best of Dutch short film. Every year we invite inspiring film personalities to deliver a speech to inspire the new generation to create more and better movies. It’s our way of trying to create an awards ceremony where everybody wins something, at the very least some inspiration.

In the previous editions, we have hosted personalities such as living-legend actor Rutger Hauer, cult film directors Béla Tarr and Peter Greenaway, two-times Oscar nominee and Golden Globe-winning director Hany Abu-Assad, actors Monic Hendrickx and Yorick van Wageningen among many others.

The first guests of honour confirmed are Stanley Kubrick & Steven Spielberg’s producer: Jan Harlan (The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut), actress Willeke van Ammelrooy (Antonia, Ciske the Rat), producer: Gareth Wiley (Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona), actress Johanna ter Steege (Spoorloos, Paradise Road), Marc van Warmerdam (producer A Gentle Creature, Borgman) , and Emmy-winner actress Maryam Hassouni (Dunya & Desie, Offers). Emmy-winner René Mioch will co-host this event. More names will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

We also honour a role model who has been inspiring the new Dutch filmmakers and contributed to the prestige of Dutch cinema at home and abroad with the Shortcutz Career Award. This year we are honouring documentary’s living-legend Heddy Honigmann, journalist Hans Beerekamp will present the Award.

This year is also the celebrations of our 5th anniversary. So this year do not forget to bring your dancing shoes. From 23:30 join us at EYE Bar Restaurant for some serious dance moves. Actor and DJ Egbert-Jan Weeber will take care of the DJ activity of the evening.
Dresscode: Festive
