Dutch Filmfund grants support to Mandai River

Extremely happy that our feature film ‘Mandai River’ by Michael Sewandono just received maximum financial production support of €1M from the Netherlands Film Fund, kickstarting the financing and packaging progress.

Especially proud as this is quite a unique to receive such trust from the fund: this will be Michael’s first feature length film, set in nowadays Asia against the backdrop of the palm-oil industry. A drama/thriller in mostly English language and to say it is a complex and ambitious project is an understatement.

But most of all, incredibly topical and urgent and we really want to thank all the supporters during the extensive development process, including the Nederlands Filmfonds, EAVE (Ties that Bind) and Cannes L’Atelier and co-writer Roelof Jan Minneboo
