Jaap van Heusden
Jaap van Heusden (1979) took different philosophy courses at Utrecht University and attended a four-week screenwriting course in Hollywood. After finishing an apprenticeship with director Willem van de Sande Bakhuyzen, he graduated from the director's department of the Dutch Film Academy in the summer of 2005 with "A complicated story, simply told". The film was shortlisted for the Student Academy Awards in L.A., selected for the Cannes Filmfestival 2006. And it won prices at festivals around the world.
In 2006 the short documentary Anderman (IJswater Films) was in competition at the Netherlands Filmfestival, was warmly received by the press and distributed in national theaters. The film was selected for Tribeca NY 2007 and AFI Silverdocs.

Also in 2008 he directed the 40 minute psychological TV drama ‘Ooit’ (‘One Day’) for IJswater Films and NPS/VARA/VPRO. The film premiered at the Netherlands Filmfestival, was called ‘a jewel’ by NRC Handelsblad and was nominated for the Golden Calf for Best TV film.
