Description

Studio Nieuwe Gronden -presently SNG Film- was founded on October 22 1979 from the legendary film collective Amsterdams Stadsjournaal (ASJ). While the ASJ made social-political films, Studio Nieuwe Gronden focused on auteur films. From 1979 to 2001 René Scholten was the driving force behind Studio Nieuwe Gronden. After his death in 2001 Digna Sinke took over his work. SNG Film still wants to produce idiosyncratic films. That can be both documentary or feature film (or everything in between). Important is the involvement the filmmaker. It is not only about the certain urgency in which someone wants to tell something, but also the chosen form in which it is told. International co-production can be a way to initiate, in good cooperation, exceptional artistic films.
