High Point Films has continued its long-time relationship with Dutch film-maker Pieter Kuijpers by taking on world sales (outside Benelux) for his latest film Nothing To Lose.

The project, which will have a gala premiere at this week's International Film Festival Rotterdam, will later screen at Berlin's European Film Market. Independent will release in The Netherlands on Jan 31.

Popular stand-up comedian Theo Maassen takes on a darker role as a man on the run from a psychiatric hospital who takes an unlikely hostage.

Kuijper's own Pupkin Film, which he formed with Sander van Meurs and Andre Teelen, produced.

High Point previously worked on his films Godforsaken and Dennis P and he's also the director of the award-winner Off Screen.

'Pieter Kuijpers spearheads the new generation of bold young Dutch film makers who, slowly but surely, have been making the world sit up and take notice,' High Point head Cary Fitzgerald said. 'With top prizes won at festivals as far ranging as Montreal, Fantasporto, Chicago, Lecce, Leeds and Philadelphia, he is already carving out quite a reputation for himself and we are thrilled to be working with him yet again.'
