Now in its ninth year, the successful Hubert Bals Fund Plus programme of The Netherlands Film Fund and IFFR gets Dutch producers involved in HBF-supported, international co-productions. This Fall HBF Plus support is granted to OAK Motion Pictures for the realisation of THE WOUND, John Trengove’s first feature film on the ritual circumcision of a teenage gay Xhosa boy in South Africa. The second grant goes to Viking Film for OSCURO ANIMAL by Colombian filmmaker Felipe Guerrero, on the journey of three women forced to flee their homes following the violent conflict in their region. HBF Plus has now supported five projects this year, including the three projects announced last May.
