Alumnus of the Month
Pieter Kuijpers (Theater, Film and Television Studies, 1992) is a director, producer and scriptwriter. Last month his series Ares, a psychological horror series about the student corporation in Amsterdam, appeared on Netflix. A first, because it is the first fully Dutch series on the streaming service. This series was filmed in special places, such as the Tropenmuseum, The Teylers Museum and the Rijksmuseum.
Earlier films by Kuijpers include Van God los (awarded with a Gouden Kalf), De griezelbus and Tbs. In 2017 he received an oeuvre prize for his contribution to Dutch film.
