We are Een van de jongens (Dutch for ‘one of the guys’), the production company of producer Hasse van Nunen and director-producer Renko Douze. Together with filmmakers with a strong vision, we produce creative documentaries about the issues that matter. Or should matter. In the past decade we’ve produced more than 20 films, that were screened and broadcast all over the world, and got awarded at Berlinale, IDFA, Full Frame a.o.

But making films is about more than just making films. We're determined to unleash the full societal potential of our films. By placing important stories in unexpected contexts, we reach unusual audiences and improve their impact.
