Under the direction of Janneke Doolaard, Sylvia Baan and Harmen Jalvingh, Amsterdam-based film production company DOXY Films has developed itself in connecting relevant subjects with an original visual style, in cooperation with established and emerging filmmakers. DOXY has been supplementing the documentary experience gained over the years with fiction; grounded fiction, rooted in reality and in the belief that content determines form. In addition, we have broadened our playing field with sports-related films.
Our team has been active in film production for years. Recent titles include The Mirror and the Window by Diégo Gutierrez (IDFA Envision Competition 2021, nomination Best Dutch Documentary IDFA 2021), Here we move, here we groove by Sergej Kreso (Competition IDFA 2020, nomination Gouden Kalf NFF 2021), Sheltered (Dierbaren) by Saskia Gubbels (Competition IDFA 2020, Visions du Réel 2021, nomination Gouden Kalf NFF 2021) and Stop Filming Us by Joris Postema (Dutch Movies Matter Award 2020, nomination Prix Europa 2020). In production are among others the documentaries A Way To B (Jos de Putter), L'Amour/La Mort (Ramon Gieling) and the musical film In the middle of the night by Isis Cabolet and Merol.
