ACE Producers has selected 3 outstanding up-and coming producers from the Netherlands for the ACE Mentoring Programme 2021. Designed and developed in collaboration with the Netherlands Film Fund, NAPA, Film Forward and Eye Filmmuseum, the ACE Mentoring Programme aims to support Dutch emerging producers in reaching the next level of experience and developing their international network by matching them with a mentor from the ACE Producers Network actively working within the European film industry.

For this first edition, ACE Producers has matched mentors of the ACE Network according to the specific needs of the selected producers. The mentorship includes meetings throughout the year at international festivals and events, and online.

Jacobine van der Vloed: “We selected the 3 producers based on their track-record, motivation statements, and the stage they are currently at within their own careers. ACE Producers wants to assist in the further development of these promising producers’ careers in order to sustain strong independent European cinema. The ACE Producers Network with its established and successful members has all the knowledge and expertise to provide for that.”
