    Joren Molter

    Joren Molter (1993) grew up in Netherlands most northern province Groningen. At the age of sixteen his short film Full of life (2011) was selected for the debut competition at the Netherlands Film Festival (2012). Even before he started his study at the Netherlands Film Academy, he co-directed feature film Foreigners, shot in New York, Berlin and Groningen, supported by Netherlands Film Fund. At the age of eighteen Joren was admitted at the Netherlands Film
    Academy. During his study Joren independently (outside the regular courses of the Film Academy) directed four short films. Joren’s work distinguishes itself in its stylistic vision. Urges and weakness of mankind are returning themes in his work. His graduation film Greetings from Kropsdam (2016) is set in Groningen where Joren started his passion for directing films. This film shows how a seemingly peaceful community is united on excluding a lonely man. Joren’s graduation film was selected for many international film festivals, like Clermont-Ferrand, Premier Plans, Warsaw, Busan and Palm Springs. Joren also directs commercials. His first commercial is nominated for the SAN accent award, the communication prize for and by advertisers. Joren’s short film KIND, written by Britt Snell and produced by Family Affair Films it's his first film after graduation.
