29 Oct

Every last Friday of the month, BROET and Natlab organise a Mastertalk. We invite a film professional to visit Eindhoven and tell you everything about inspiring experiences and gained knowledge.

Dutch top producer Els Vandevorst will come to talk about her impressive carrier and role as partner in crime of film directors Martin Koolhoven, Brian De Palma, Thomas Vinterberg, Lars von Trier and many more. If you're an upcoming film producer or film professional or just very interested in how the film branche actually works, this one's a can't miss!

This masterclass will be presented in Dutch.

No producer means no film. A producer searches for a suitable director or writer for (an idea for) a film script, puts together the rest of the production team, handles funding and the logistics of the entire production process, and is responsible for the final delivery of a film. A producer is thus involved in the complete process of making a film.

Do you have ambitions to become a film producer yourself? Are you a working in the field of film and do you want to know more about the production process of large film productions? Or do you want to get inspired by Els' personal experiences, do's and don'ts, and carreer - full of trial and error, biting bullets, and an unbridled belief in the films she was making? Go get that ticket and feel free to send us what you would like to know from or ask Els at Of course, there will also be room for questions during the masterclass.
