Over 30 years of filmmaking

Writers, artists and filmmakers are working together in this production company, founded by Jan van den Berg, who in the early seventies started making films from his original field of study, cultural anthropology.

During his fieldwork at the Leiden university he made his first film:
Olverenos (1975), about the inhabitants of a village in Andalusia, where because of continuous drought, more and more man had to leave the village to look for a living abroad.

Since that time drsFILM made many documentaries and drama productions. The films are mostly about people at the cutting edge between cultures.

The films are shown in festivals and broadcasted at home and abroad in Belgium, France, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Australia, India, Cambodia, Japan and the US.
