has been seen by over 100,000 people in less than two months of exhibition – a figure that has earned it the “Golden Film” label, given out jointly by the Netherlands Film Fund and the Netherlands Film Festival to cast members Derek de Lint and Cynthia Abma. In addition, Luuk van Bemmelen and Melle Runderkamp received the “Golden Pen” from the Network of Scriptwriters.

Family Weekend is a comedy centring on an old, wealthy widower who invites his three children to spend a weekend at the family mansion. Hoping to hear that their father will finally divide their inheritance among the three, the children will soon be faced with a not-so-pleasant surprise: their father is getting married to a young, blond and vulgar fiancée. Once recovered from the shock, the three will try everything in their power to prevent the wedding from going ahead.

Starring Derek de Lint, Cynthia Abma, Jelka van Houten, Jennifer Hoffman and Tim Haars, Family Weekend was produced by Maarten Swart for Kaap Holland Film and is being distributed by Entertainment One Benelux. It is still screening at 22 venues across the Netherlands.

Besides the Golden Film label, the Netherlands Film Fund and the Netherlands Film Festival also give out the Platinum and Diamond Film labels, designed to reward Dutch productions that attract over 400,000 and one million moviegoers, respectively.
