The ACE Mentoring Programme aims to support producers from the Netherlands and Dutch Overseas Territories in managing their careers and developing their international network, by providing them with the opportunity to learn from established mentors actively working within the European film industry.
The goal is to help these emerging producers reach the next level of experience and help them in the development of their international network.
Each year three Dutch producers will be selected for the programme. After selection, each producer will be matched to a mentor according to their specific needs. Throughout the year the producer will have up to 4 meetings with their mentor, either at international festivals and events where both are present, or online. Participation in the Mentoring Programme NL is free of charge (all travel and accommodation expenses that may arise will not be covered by the organisation).
To best benefit from the programme, we ask producers to have a full-length project in development which can be fiction, animation or documentary.
The ACE Mentoring Programme NL has been set up in collaboration with the Netherlands Film Fund.
