Dag van de Korte Film

De Dag van De Korte Film (Short Film Day) is celebrated on 21 December, the shortest day of the year. On this day, audiences in Dutch film theatres are treated to a special programme of the best homegrown short films, such as Golden Calf winner Pantser, a short thriller by Jan Verdijk that resonates with current affairs. And Watamula by Kevin Osepa, a magical-realistic panorama set in the beautiful landscapes of the island Curaçao.

    A Remark You Made (Hanna van Niekerk, NL 2021, fiction, 24’)

Grappling with this situation, Joshua turns to his mother for guidance.

  • Still Watamula Kevin Osepa NL 2020

    Watamula (Kevin Osepa, NL 2020, fiction, 25’)

    Visual artist and filmmaker Kevin Osepa, for whom the identity of young Afro-Caribbeans is an important subject, molds this short film into a magical-realistic panorama bringing together landscape and fate, spirituality, sensuality, and machismo. Osepa was selected as Talent en Route at the 2021 edition of the Netherlands Film Festival, so definitely a talent to keep an eye on!

    Pantser (Jan Verdijk, NL 2021, fiction, 21’)
