Jos van Meerveld

Jos van Meerveld is a Dutch film director who graduated at the Dutch Film Academy in Amsterdam during the summer of 2017. Prior to his time there, he worked from a young age as a editor and cameraman for different television networks.

During his time at the academy, he started to form a love for dark comedy combined with drama. His stories often put social matters in a different light and shows the absurdity of human behavior. For example the film “Skinache”, which is one of his two graduating films. ‘Skinache’ is an absurd dark comedy of a man who’s skin is starting to peel off, because he has a lack of psychical contact. He wants to remind people about basic human needs in a now digital world. This film was shown at festivals in Germany and Poland. His other graduation film ‘Our very own defects’ is an ambitious ensemble film about normal civilians who keep their immoral side secret to the outside world. This was based on true crime stories that took place in the Netherlands. This film premiered at the Dutch film festival and was part of the international competition at the Sehsüchte student film festival in Germany.

After his graduation Jos worked on a lot of branded content campaigns for brands like Dyson, Milka and Tele2. The last film won a bronze Esprix. Now Jos is focusing on both commercials and short films but he is also working on a feature length film.
