Following the business strategy ‘being the fastest in changing all the time’ Dutch FilmWorks (DFW) has grown to be the leading independent distributor of filmed entertainment in the Benelux since its start in 1998. DFW is active in all windows: Theatrical, DVD, VOD and TV. Successes include a wide range of international titles such as Arctic, Papillon, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Bad Moms, The Wolf of Wall Street, BBC’s Earth and in 2019 Angel Has Fallen, Rambo: Last Blood, After the Wedding and Midway - by Roland Emmerich - are upcoming. Dutch product is an important pillar; with local successes such as Word War II thriller The Resistance Banker, drama Stricken, youth-film 100% Coco, romantic comedies Heavily in Love, Soof, Mannenharten and the Dutch/Belgian crime series Undercover.
DFW is aggregator for iTunes, Google Play, Netflix and Amazon. In 2014 the company started to co-produce local films and series, which organically resultated in the sales of international rights to major players in their existing network. Important global deals in 2018 were The Resistance Banker and Undercover - the first Dutch-language series exclusively available on Netflix worldwide. While DFW works more and more on local films and series with high international potential, global activities are professionalized in 2019 by setting up the sales division DFW International, which will be present at all major film and television markets worldwide to present the international catalogue.
