One of them, Daan Veldhuizen, is now nominated in the category best long documentary, with his film “Banana Pancakes and the Children of Sticky Rice”.

Being a tourist
Volkshotel screened the film on August 7th along with the opening of the exhibition I am Authentic, a photo series of life-sized portraits of backpackers and locals. It is possible to see these individuals straight in the eye until medio September in our Houten Zaal.
The price will be awarded on Friday the 2nd of Oktober in the Beatrix theatre in Utrecht. We will cross our fingers for Daan Veldhuizen that he wins his much deserved Gouden Kalf.
