What a support I always get from the filmfund. I can’t count the amount anymore but again I got a rejection from the filmfund. This time I asked some money for developing the script for my Bollywood film, on which I’m right now working here in Bombay even without their support. The reason was the same as always: your project is too unusual, it is too difficult and therefore not realistic to fund. Ah… the only thing I can say is, strange that the representatives of the Dutch government who want to develop an interesting film industry don’t support makers who are different. Anyhow. It seems to become a tradition. I protest against it and next month we’ll have a meeting. What a waste of time, all this nonsense. I happy to be here in the heat meeting enthusiastic producers who are not afraid.
