Before founding Keplerfilm in April 2016, long-time friends Derk-Jan Warrink and Koji Nelissen worked at several Dutch production companies. For more than eight years, they were lucky enough to be surrounded by many inspiring talents with whom they succeeded to shape and generate amazing films and TV series. They’ve worked on award- winning projects, both in their native The Netherlands as internationally, such as Monos (Alejandro Landes), The Lobster (Yorgos Lanthimos), Bullhead (Michaël R. Roskam) and Blind (Eskil Vogt). With a strong focus on developing and nurturing talent, Keplerfilms' business is telling stories; whether funny or sad, always deeply human and with a heart, and aiming to intellectually entertain the audience.
