Executive producer

In this project, Grolsch FilmWorks handpicks young avant-garde filmmakers together with  film production company MIKE TEEVEE and hands them stories about real unconventional thinkers, to create a new take on the ‘documentary film’ category. The mission is to capture unconventional thinking with a purpose.

This film will feature as its unconventional thinker Amsterdam renaissance man Colin Vlaar. A skater, surfer, DJ and owner of clothing brand ‘Do Ya Feng’. Last but not least, he is co-owner and founder of the first skate-cafe in Europe.

Each film will be curated by a well-established filmmaker. He will help select the unconventional thinker and the avant-garde filmmakers, and coach them throughout the project.

The first celebrity curator is Steven Berkoff: a name well-known in and outside the film industry. Steven has played roles in films as diverse as Rambo and Octopussy. He is someone with experience in and a love for coaching as well as having a broad and unconventional track record in both film and theatre directing.

The first film has been shot and directed by Giancarlo Sanchez from film production company CZAR. Giancarlo is a well-known name in the Dutch film community, especially after winning the prestigious ‘Gouden Kalf’ Dutch academy film award for his debut film Horizon.
