Occupation Film director, screenwriter, film producer

Jos Stelling (born 16 July 1945) is a Dutch film director and screenwriter. He has directed 12 films, and is working on his new film (release date early 2011) The Girl and Death, in which Dutch actress Sylvia Hoeks will play the lead role.

He made his debut as a film director in 1974 with ‘Mariken van Nieumegen’. The film was selected for the official Cannes competition in 1975. No Dutch film has been rewarded with this honour since. With this film, Stellings cinematographic position was set worldwide. Yet Stelling is an autodidact; he didn’t study at any film school.

In 1981 he founded the Dutch Film Days a festival for Dutch directors to give them the possibility to show their films and to create an informal platform for the filmmakers. He continued to serve as chairman and director until the 1991 edition. After he abdicated the festival was renamed the Dutch Film Festival. In 1989 he was a member of the jury at the 16th Moscow International Film Festival.[1] In 2002 he was a member of the jury at the 24th Moscow International Film Festival.[2]

Stelling is founder and owner of two arthouse cinemas in Utrecht, Springhaver (since 1978) & Louis Hartlooper Complex (since 2004).
