Meet New Advisory Board Member Floor Onrust

We are proud to introduce a new CfP Advisory Board Member, Floor Onrust, who replaces Marleen Slot who is unable to continue due to other engagements. We thank Marleen tremendously for her efforts and input over the years.

Floor Onrust founded Amsterdam-based film production company Family Affair Films, which specializes in urgent and contemporary fiction of high artistic quality from strong and visionary authors.

Onrust produced the features CODE BLUE by Urszula Antoniak (Cannes Directors’ Fortnight 2011), the children’s film LIFE ACCORDING TO NINO by Simone van Dusseldorp (written by Urszula Antoniak and winner of the best film prizes at Cinekid 2014 and BUFF 2015) and HISTORY’S FUTURE, the feature debut of artist Fiona Tan (starring Mark O’Halloran, Denis Lavant and Anne Consigny, nominated for Tiger Award IFFR 2016.)

Her credits include high-profile co-productions such as NOTHING PERSONAL (winner of six awards at Locarno 2009), THE BLUE WAVE (Berlinale 2013) and the children’s film THE LABYRINTH (Toronto 2014).

In 2017 Onrust will present two more promising productions: Urszula Antoniak’s fourth feature Beyond Words and Rosanne Pel’s feature debut LIGHT AS FEATHERS.

Guido van Driel’s second feature BLOODY MARIE (selected for Dutch Crossover and recipient of maximum production support by Netherlands Film Fund), will go into production at the end of 2017.

Currently Onrust is developing Antoniak’s fifth feature STRANGER and Van Driel’s THE YEAR WE LOST TO THE GERMANS, a film for children.

Onrust participated at EAVE in 2011 and the Toronto Producer’s Lab in 2015. She is member of the ACE producer network and The European Film Academy.
