NL Film Installs New Creative Team


Banijay Benelux has revealed the new creative team of NL Film, which has tapped Anne de Clercq as creative director.

In this role, de Clercq will manage NL Film’s creative team and portfolio, alongside her directing work. Her recent credits include the cinema hit Soof 3 and Snelle- Zonder Jas Naar Buiten, a documentary about Dutch rapper and singer Snelle.

Jochum ten Haaf has been promoted to head of development and will work alongside de Clercq and creative producers Henriette Drost and Claire Zhou.

The NL Film ‘Creative Room’ will develop new stories and acquire IP to strengthen the business, producing films for large audiences as well as internationally driven drama series.

Dennis Cornelisse, head of production at NL Film, said: “Anne is one of the best in the business; she is multi-talented, inspiring and a highly in-demand creative. With her infectious enthusiasm and knowledge about the profession, along with her track record as a director, she will add great value to our company. The team is now complete with Jochum, Henriette and Claire, and we can’t wait to see the new projects they develop together with Anne.”

Added de Clerq: “I have a huge amount of energy for this new step in my career. NL Film is widely known for its quality drama and films, which perfectly suits my penchant for telling beautiful, catchy stories with imperfect characters. I am very much looking forward to working and collaborating with my new ambitious colleagues.”
