To mark its five-year milestone, The Directors Roundtable is presenting several shorts & clips by talented Dutch filmmakers of colour, under the umbrella name of INDIGO. By providing a platform for filmmakers and like-minded individuals of colour, INDIGO strives to create a unique experience rewarding the makers and introducing them to a wider audience, while also bringing them together to exchange ideas and to further partnerships, both nationally and internationally.
In this edition: film and video work by Jordi Wijnalda (Gilles), Loëlle Monsanto (Sranan Folktales "Ricky"), Angelo Ormskerk (Mind's Eye), Giovanni Volkerts (Blauwe Dag) and Dave Edhard (Back in the Day). The screening will be followed by a round-table discussion with screenwriter Ashar Medina and director Hesdy Lonwijk, amongst others, who will examine the Dutch film industry by means of critical questions to open up the dialogue for a more inclusive industry.
The Directors Roundtable Amsterdam (DRT) was...
