Amsterdam-based film production company DOXY lays emphasis on producing films of all manifestations – from an homeless opera and the more ‘traditional’ documentary, to music film, movie and (drama) series. After documentaries on (top) athletes like Becoming Zlatan (Magnus & Fredrik Gertten) we’ve also broadened our playing field with sports related films: New plans are on the stack. In 2017-2018 slatefunding has been made available by the Netherlands Film Fund to DOXY for the artistic development of new films.
Team DOXY has been active in film production for years, making dozens of films, winning national- and international awards, taking part in competitions of A-festivals and scoring (cinema) hits. Recent titles include: The Mystery of the Milking Robots (Vuk Janic), Erbarme Dich – Mattheus Passion Stories (Ramón Gieling), which received the Chrystal Film Award for box office success, and festival hit Alice Cares (Sander Burger), nominated for Prix Europa (2017) and – among other- winner of Eureka Award (2015). Currently in (post)production are international co-productions like Here we move, here we groove (Sergej Kreso) and In the arms of Morpheus (Marc Schmidt). Part of this year’s IDFA Forum is Stop filming us! (Joris Postema).
Power of DOXY is the years of experience and the extensive network of the production team, under direction of executive producers Sylvia Baan (Felice…Felice, Johan Cruijff: En un momento dado) and Harmen Jalvingh (Bloody Mondays & Strawberry Pies and Parts of a family and in addition National Information Provider International Coproductions of the European Documentary Network (EDN).
