Joren Molter

Joren Molter

Film director

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). 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 45 international film festivals, like Clermont-Ferrand, Warsaw, Busan and Palm Springs and won 11 international awards.

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 and his 45 minute television film DÒST, both written by Britt Snell and produced by Family Affair Films, are his first films after graduation.
