Mirjam van Veelen


My films are about people who experience a major event, about how they deal with it and how it makes them change. However it are no sad movies. They are poetic and aesthetic and the tone is light. There is humor in it and by times they are hilarious. They have a positive effect, because the main characters always find a way to further, even better: to go on living.
I mostly film in far away countries with a complete different culture than ours like Russia, China, Japan and Africa.

My films are selected for International Film Festivals, released in Arthouse cinema’s in the Netherlands and in Asia. Some of them have have been shown on Dutch TV. Educated as an visual artist my films are also shown in Museums of Modern Art.
