Please introduce yourself and tell us something about your background
Hello! It’s a pleasure to meet you! This year I started working for the Junior Co-Production Market at Cinekid . In the past I worked at IDFA and the Netherlands Film Fund. Nowadays I’m afreelancer for several film festivals where I work in different departments.
What is your role at Cinekid for Professionals?
As a senior producer I produce the Junior Co-production Market. The project selection, coordinating the JCM public pitches and scheduling the one-to-one meetings are part of my job. This year there are many great projects looking for financiers. I hope the market can be the platform where the projects can achieve their goals. It is a real pleasure to be a part of that.
What do you like about Cinekid?
I enjoy working for different film festivals, becauseI’m curious to learn how these different organisations work. Cinekid is special because of its focus on children’s film. I’m really excited about the Cinekid for Professionals programme and especially the Junior Co-Production Market. It will be a great Cinekid edition, I am sure about that.
Looking forward to meeting you at the festival!
