Jan Doense

Director and producer Jan Doense studied film in his native Netherlands as well as in New York. Apart from directing and production, he also works on festivals – he has founded the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival, which, as the name reveals, focuses on fantastic genres. He also concentrates on film journalism and works as a lawyer. He focuses primarily on horror films as he considers that this genre is becoming increasingly popular in the last decade thanks to films such as The Sixth Sense. “Character development is more and more important, and special effects tend to play a smaller role,” he says, although he adds that B-style shockers and slashers will always be made. Yet he doesn't condemn this type of cinema either. Jan Doense will introduce The Pool.
