Weekly Mixer

We are hosting a weekly mixer at Lab111 on Fridays between 17:00 and 19:00. It’s a great way to start your weekend as an indy filmmaker. We are usually between 10 and 20 people who are all trying to make the indy filmmaking game happen. You would find a happy troop of actors, directors, writers, cinematographers, etc.

Getting in touch with other filmmakers can be challenging. An informal mixer is a great way to lower the boundaries and connect with people.

The dates of the mixers can be found on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/amsterdamFilmmakers.

Anyone that is not on Facebook can find us on the meetup page: https://www.meetup.com/Amsterdam-Film-Makers/

First Screening Succes

The first screening session of 2020 focussed on the work that Amsterdam Filmmaker members created in 2019. In total 4 short films screened. The night finished with a Q&A and drinks. All in all a great night.

Q&A Session

The movies below were screened:

As this was a friend and family screening, the evening was invite-only. All seats were taken during the screenings. The Q&A was informative and the drinks were fun.

New plans were made. What a great way to start the new year.

Persbericht: Korte films van Amsterdamse Makers

Op 23 januari draaien er in Lab111 vier korte films van Amsterdamse makers. De vertoning viert het in 2019 gerealiseerde werk van de vier opkomende filmmakers. Regisseurs: Frank Hartman, Patrick Collins, Janusz Madej en Erik Ros schreven verhalen. Ze realiseerde met behulp van teams enthousiaste makers hun visie. Drie van de Vier films zijn gerealiseerd door het netwerk: Amsterdam Filmmakers.

Friends And family screening

De vertoning wordt georganiseerd voor vrienden en familie, cast en crew. Erik Ros: “Het is voor beginnende filmmakers lastig om werk op het grote doek vertoont te krijgen”. In Nederland worden de meeste films gerealiseerd door een hecht vervlochten groep door het filmfonds gesubsidieerde filmmakers. De mogelijkheden om tot deze groep door te dringen zijn beperkt. Veel filmmakers zijn op zoek naar andere wegen langs welke zij films kunnen maken.

Amsterdam Filmmakers (AF)

AF is een netwerk van filmmakers die met eigen middelen films maken. De groep produceert films in wisselende samenstelling, op basis van vrijwilligheid. Het doel van dit netwerk is de ruimte te bieden aan talent om te groeien. Het uiteindelijke doel is om duurzaam films te ontwikkelen.

Film is groepskunst. Wanneer makers de productie naar zich toe trekken, kunnen ze zich bevrijden van de bestaande beperkingen. Daarom bestaat Amsterdam Filmmakers.

AFF-2020 Kicks off on the 23rd of January

Exciting times. Amsterdam Filmmakers is stepping it up a nudge in 2020. We are still organizing our monthly film-related events, as we did in 2019. But this year, they will all work towards a full-sized festival at the end of 2020. As per usual all our events are hosted in Lab111 one of the most exciting places for cinema in Amsterdam.

The Program

The program of the kick-off event includes screenings of the films that were made in 2019 by our members, often first-time directors. One of the goals of the Amsterdam Filmmakers network is to bring together filmmakers and enable projects. The films we are screening are by directors that got their first experience through collaboration organized by our network.
The kick-off event is selling out quickly. So get in touch if you want to be a part of it.
