Weekly sessions are held in a classroom and the results will be presented to other students and to a Dutch audience each month. We even have our own cinema!

No Filming Experience required

Every two months we will start a new course in which motivated new storytellers, filmmakers and photographers (like you!) join us in a classroom, where we will teach you step by step how to develop a film. 

Who are we?

Hi! Nice to meet you!

We are all professionals in the field of filmmaking, social work and journalism.

A large part of our current and previous work is geared at bridging the gaps between the social and cultural worlds of the locals and those of newcomers to the EU. 

The lessons we offer are based on decades of experience working within the documentary film medium and journalism. 

Alexander Moust & Lucienne Groot


We will try to bring you in contact with other talented professionals in the media world so you can work together. AMIR is a platform which you can learn from and use to move up in society, to network or simply to learn how to communicate better with your surroundings. You will develop skills, along with your fellow students, which you can implement in any walk of life.
