Tom Holkenborg / Junkie XL is to be a NFF Master guest during the 37th edition of the Dutch Film Festival. The film composer - known for both international productions including Mad Max: Fury Road, and Deadpool, as well as Dutch productions such as Brimstone - will, in his role as an NFF Master, hold a master class in the Grand Hall of the Stadsschouwburg Utrecht on September 27th. In addition, a meet & greet has been organised with the composer in order to allow him to connect with talent and professionals from the music industry.
Says Holkenborg on his role as an NFF Master: "The success I now have in Hollywood with movies like Mad Max: Fury Road and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, began thanks to the confidence I got from Dutch directors. I regard it as an honour that I can play such a big role in a Dutch Film Festival. It feels like everything has come full circle." One of the highlights of his presence at the NFF, according to Holkenborg, is the unique live Studio Time session during his master class. "I am very curious about what sort of young talents I'll get to meet."
The film composer, currently living in the United States, rose to international prominence in 2002 with his remix of Elvis Presley's A Little Less Conversation. In addition to a host of international productions including Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Tower, Deadpool, Black Mass, 300: Rise of an Empire, Divergent, alongside collaborations with Hans Zimmer (including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), he also makes important creative contributions to Dutch films (eg The Happy Housewife, The Heineken Kidnapping, New Kids Turbo and Brimstone). In 2007 and 2012 he was nominated for a Golden Calf for Best Music for the films Blind and The Heineken Abduction.
