New round of applications de Verbeelding

On 29 August 2017 a new round of applications for de Verbeelding will start. De Verbeelding is a collaborative project between the Mondriaan Fund and the Netherlands Film Fund that is aimed at films that are on the cusp between cinematography and visual art.

Biennially four projects can be supported in the development fase. Two (out of the four) are then selected for a grant for the realisation. The deadline for filing applications for a grant for development is 11 October 2017 before 5 PM. Subsequently, the selected applicants can file an application for the realisation on 13 March 2018 at the latest. Applications have to be filed via the Filmfonds.
