Mama Agatha receives support from Amsterdam Fund for the Arts

AFKWe are thrilled to announce that Mama Agatha has received production support from the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts. The Amsterdam Fund for the Arts supports projects of artistic excellence that make a significant contribution to the cultural life of the city.  Both the characters in Mama Agatha and the filmmaking team come from all corners of the world, and all of them found a home in Amsterdam. As an international project that is at the same time deeply rooted in the city’s diversity and cycling culture, we are very honored by the fund’s trust in the project.
At the beginning of July, together with a new group of students in Mama Agatha’s class, we will begin filming Mama Agatha.
