The 'Thrill Of The Search' is a lesson about the inner quest of us ordinary people. In 'Zonsondergang', two lesbian girls secretly try to hide their relationship from a conservative brother.

Did You Know?


Stephan Evenblij always dreamed of the possibility for The Hague to compete as a film city with Amsterdam (a frequently used location in Dutch movies and home of most of it's industry). In 2007 an official Amsterdam version of the international 48hrs contest began. Evenblij contacted councilor Robert van Asten and since they couldn't also do a 48hrs project, they changed it into 72hrs. The idea was then sponsored by the city council. See more »

Pretty Lady (short 'Burtman'): [sudden arrogance] Can I decide that myself?
Burtman (short 'Burtman'): Of course. Sorry, it was more like a recommendation.
