World Premiere Miel-Emile movie on the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2019

A day before the official ticket sales started at the IFFR, the website of IFFR said that the screening of Miel-Emile was already sold out. The tension during an initial screening is always high, for the maker, but also for sound editor Rut Uijtendaal, for example, who has done his utmost to keep the sound on track. But also for the protagonists, Emile and Rilke, who were present.

Father and daughter, who saw themselves on a big screen for the first time. Rilke later said that she could watch the 2nd performance better and with more fun. Sometimes it was very quiet during the film, especially the letters from the mother, Lies, made a big impression. If you let yourself be carried away as a viewer through the stream of thoughts, images and sounds, you will go along with the rhythm of the montage and get touched.

The film impresses many people and after 2 screenings it was in 4th place with the Public Jury. We were very surprised and happy. Eventually the film ended on the 10th place. A wonderful result in this big Festival with more than 200 international films.

Miel-Emile will be released on April 7, 2019 at Filmmuseum EYE in Amsterdam. After that he will be screened in various Filmtheaters in the Netherlands.
