ICARUS Film was founded in 2016 with the dream to share beautiful stories with audiences from all over the world. We're a creative collective that spends a lot of time on script development, character studies and rhythm in dialogue. We're constantly in the search for new, original stories. Like Icarus, we love to take risks, jump in the deep and aim for the sun. We love new challenges and think in possibilities rather than obstacles. Our dreams are big but we approach them with a one step at a time mentality.
In the past couple of years we have released the short films: Imaginair, Out of Focus and (On)besproken. And we also produced the documentary: Als ik straks weg ga.
We're currently working on a new short film: Onno
Furthermore, a lot of hard work is being done behind the scenes on various future projects, including our first full-length film.
