Sprekers

What can you expect from Cinetoko? We aim to inspire and amaze and maybe make you laugh too. Here are a few of the movie makers who did just that, at Cinetoko they shared their ideas and the process of filming and animating.

Cinetoko #27 Guido van Driel / June 2013

“Better to be a late bloomer than a child genius” says Guido van Driel, who at the age of fifty wrote his first screenplay and debuted as a film maker. His feature-length film – the opening film at the IFFR 2013 – was based on his own graphic novel “The resurrection of a bastard”.

Cinetoko #25 Hisko Hulsing / October 2012

What takes six and a half years and 25.000 drawings? That would be a masterpiece called “Junkyard” by Hisko Hulsing. According to NRC Next; “Junkyard is not only a lush and warm-blooded visual treat but also a narrative containing an opinion and intriguing moral layering”.

Cinetoko #21 Martijn Maria Smits / December 2011

Martijn was the first Dutch director ever to be nominated for the Rotterdam Film Festival Tiger Awards with his realistic portrait of the Belgian lower class: C’est déjà l’été. This guy isn’t afraid of taking on the less popular subjects: “I don’t make films to entertain people; I want them to feel, to see, to be agitated”.
