My name is Marleen Slot and I’m an Amsterdam based producer and founder of Viking Film. I produced feature films like DIRTY GOD (Sacha Polak, Sundance World Dramatic Competition and opening film IFFR, 2019), ROJO (Benjamin Naishtat, TIFF Platform and San Sebastian 2018), NEON BULL (Gabriel Mascaro, Venice Orizzonti and TIFF Platform 2015), ZURICH (Sacha Polak, Berlinale Forum winner CICAE Art Cinema Award 2015) and SUMMER OF SANGAILE (Alanté Kavaïté, Sundance World Dramatic Competition and Berlinale Panorama 2015). I worked as a producer at Lemming Film for seven years before I founded my own company in 2011. Besides that I’m chairman of the Netherlands Producers association, and part of EAVE and ACE.
During the masterclass I will talk openly about my experiences as a European producer. I will share my successes but I will also share the difficulties of being a producer. I would like to talk with you about what it means to be a producer and how challenging it can be to dedicate your life to film. I will talk about cultural entrepreneurship and what it means to have your own production company, also for your personal live. I will show the beauty and the tragedy and I hope that after the masterclass you are inspired and you have learned more about what it is to produce on an international level.
