Meanwhile, Holland Film Meeting (HFM) head Ellis Driessen said that the five-day HFM which finished last Monday had been 'very productive with real results.'

Of the projects in the Netherlands Production Platform (NPP), several secured co-producers and sales agents.

Hans de Weers' Eyeworks Egmond hopes to sign Germany's Joachim Von Vietinghoff of Von Vietinghoff Filmproduktion as a co-producer before the end of this year on its new Marleen Gorris project My Father's Notebook.

Dutch project Cold from director Bea De Visser struck a deal with Berlin-based MDC International to handle international sales. Several other co-production arrangements are pending, and Driessen said that one of the hottest projects was Irish horror film The Wake Wood to be directed by David Keating (The Last Of The High Kings) and written and co-produced by Brendan McCarthy.

Among the other international producers attending the HFM were Cedomir Kolar of ASAP Films in Paris, Julie Baines of DAN Films in London and Pierre Spengler of Clubdeal Ltd in London.

Holland Film Meeting is backed by the Dutch Film Fund, the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, the Ministry Of Education, Culture & Science and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
