The documentary film Ceres by Brussels-based Dutch director Janet van den Brand has been selected at the Berlin International Film Festival (15-25 February), where it will be in competition in the Generation K Plus programme. Belga’s in-house Belgian Tax Shelter fund has financed the project initiated by upcoming Belgian documentary production company, Diplodokus, in co-production with Belga Productions.
Ceres is a poetic and tangible documentary film that follows four children as they experience the natural cycle of life on a farm. Each child lives on a remote farm in the southwest of The Netherlands and is learning the profession of their ancestors from a young age. They dream that one day they will take over the farm of their father.

In 2017, Belga Productions co-produced and co-financed Diplodokus’ documentary series Once upon a time, about the Royal Belgian Institute for Natural Sciences and the documentary film Annapolis, about Antwerp’s left bank.
