Documentary series Backlight is continuing its succes. At MIPDOC the Backlight titles The European Security Complex, Bye Bye Car, and Seed Battles did very well, resulting in deals with YLE Finland, SPIEGEL TV and many interests.
All Backlights have been produced by the VPRO and handle different subjects, with “future affairs” as a reccuring theme.
Recently NPO Sales has sold package deals of Backlights to Catalunya, Poland, Ireland, Russia, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Day in, day out, year after year, a long line can be seen in front of the Anne Frank House. A line of patient waiters, consisting of all possibly nationalities. But today they are not only there because they want to enter the Anne Frank Museum (the famous Achterhuis), but because they are attending the premiere of In Line for Anne Frank.

This production from The Media Brothers in cooperation with the NOS has been taken on as a pre-buy by VRT.
