Rogier Kramer graduated from the Netherlands Film Academy in 2015. His first opportunity towards a creative and entrepreneurial adventure came with an invitation to the Talent Speeddates at the Netherlands Film Festival in his graduate year. Later, after his internship, he continued working as junior producer at Dutch Mountain Film. In 2017 he was promoted to producer and as of 2019 he is co-owner of the company. Gaining more and more experience with several productions, he has also been recognised as a young emerging talent and invited for various industry meetings and training programs, such as Rotterdam Lab (IFFR) in 2018, Talent en Route (Netherlands Film Festival) in 2019 and Berlinale Talents in 2020. His main focus is to set up new collaborations with talented people and to produce fiction films and series, but he is also involved with international co-productions and documentaries. In line with his aspiration he was selected by the Netherlands Film Fund to join the producers meeting created by the German Federal Film Board (FFA) for up-and-coming film makers at the Max Ophüls Preis Festival in Saarbrücken in 2019. Rogier believes in maintaining long relationships with writers, directors and co-producers because this will eventually make the filmmaking process smoother, which will lead to better created films. His first finished, fully self-initiated short film is One of the Boys
(2018, director Ivo van Aart) in which he engages the audience in his lifelong passion for the sport korfball and the struggle to keep up with the macho locker room talk. A humorous story with a critical view on toxic masculinity; a topical issue nowadays and something Dutch Mountain Film is not afraid to point out. Furthermore Rogier is always looking for stories or characters in films with an LGBT background, because Dutch Mountain Film wants to go ahead in battle for a better representation of this group in particular.
