Marit is a young award-winning filmmaker who has focused her career on telling powerful human-interest stories. Her eccentric film style can best be described as character-driven, naturalistic and organic with loads of room for spontaneity and creativity.
After graduating in 2016 from the Dutch Film Academy, she received the prestigious “Student Academy Award” for her short film When Grey is a Color as well as two prizes at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Her next short film EN ROUTE, which was decorated with the esteemed “Gouden Kalf” award at the Netherlands Film Festival in 2019, led directly to its international premiere at the Berlinale in 2020.
Marit has seamlessly transitioned the themes and artistic style of her short films into commercial work. She recently completed thought-provoking and eye-opening campaigns for Pink Ribbon and Dreamland, highlighting subjects such as breast cancer and gender identity.
