CALL: Studio Caribe

With Studio Caribe, the Netherlands Film Fund provides filmmakers from the Caribbean part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands with the opportunity to further develop their talents and contribute to enriching the film landscape with original stories from and about the islands.

Studio Caribe focuses on the development and production of short (youth) films ranging from 5 to 30 minutes. Screenwriters, directors, and producers who are permanently residing and working on Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Sint Eustatius or Sint Maarten at the time of application can qualify for support with an original film idea.

Twelve projects will be selected for development. In addition to funding, the selected filmmakers will receive coaching, training, and participate in workshops to develop their film plans in the categories of fiction, documentary, animation, or experimental film.

From the twelve, six projects will be selected for a production grant for their short film.

You can find more information about Studio Caribe on our website starting today. Additionally, during the Curaçao International Film Festival taking place between April 10th and 14th, consultations for Studio Caribe will be organized in Curaçao, Aruba, and online. Want to book a consultation? Contact Monique Ruinen via [email protected].

On Tuesday April 9th (Willemstad) and Friday April 12th (Oranjestad) we'll celebrate the launch of Studio Caribe with some drinks. You can still sign up by clicking this link.

Applications can be submitted starting from April 15th. The deadline for Studio Caribe is Tuesday, May 21, 2024.
