VERS is the largest association for new film and television makers in the Netherlands. VERS was founded in 1996 and is there to help starting filmmakers develop within the established film world. We focus on ambitious and driven creators in the first ten years of their career who are committed to expand their network, deepen and broaden their knowledge and develop new work.
The annual VERS Film Awards are a film competition that focuses on the ambitious maker of tomorrow. During the festival a selection of 14 nominated films compete for one of the Golden Apples and the accompanying cash prize in the categories Best Direction, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Scenario and since 2019, the Audience Award.
The nominated films are screened during the festival after which they will become available for screening in our T-Port catalogue.
