Soles of Ethiopia wins Wildcard at Filmfestival

Posted on September 28, 2010


Soles of Ethiopia has been awarded with a Wildcard at the annually held Netherlands Film Festival! The Netherlands Film Fund selected director Joost van der Wiel as one of the most talented filmmakers of this year’s festival and granted him with a 40,000-euro cheque to fund his next documentary.

It’s the second prize for Van der Wiel’s debut movie. In July the Willem de Kooning Academy for filmmakers awarded him with the ‘Drempelprijs 2010‘, an annual award for the most promising academy graduate.

You can still see Soles of Ethiopia. The documentary about Ethiopians and their shoes will be screened tonight, September 28, at 22.15h at the Louis Hartlooper Complex in Utrecht. Tickets are available online and at the cinema.
