Val Kilmer to star in first Grolsch film

Grolsch has teamed up with three international directors and Vice Film for the launch of the first project under its Film Works initiative.


The Dutch beer brand launched the Grolsch Film Works studio in April as part of its strategy to align the brand with the “creativity, innovation and great ideas” demonstrated by independent cinema.

US director Harmony Korine, Russian Alexsei Fedorchenko and Polish director Jan Kwiecinski will each produce a 30-minute short film in their home nation following the same brief by project director Eddy Moretti.

The three segments will then come together to form a “unique, experimental feature film” exploring the “fourth dimension”.

Korine’s film will star Val Kilmer as a motivational speaker in Nashville.

Thomas Kamphuis, who heads up the Grolsch Film Works programme, says: “We want to work with film makers who create the sort of work that transports viewers somewhere new and original.

“The director’s involved in this project have had full creative licence to realise their vision of the brief. It’s an equal bold move from us to handover the controlling reigns of this project to their unique interpretations.”

The untitled film is scheduled to be released internationally early next year.
