Maarten Kuit
Maarten Kuit
Maarten Kuit
Producer, Founding Partner

Maarten is an experienced film producer who's been working in film since 1990. He has worked on hundreds of commercials, short films and notable TV series before joining Hazazah Pictures in 2009. Since then he has worked on Black Out, De Van Waveren Tapes, Zombie, We Are 18, the award winning short Das Wad and most recently De Boskampi's. Inspired to create temporary worlds in which he can lose himself both as a producer as well as a viewer is what Maarten loves most about making film, whether it's a story dreamt up by a director or stepping into someone's life and time for a documentary. As a producer he gets to be part of every aspect of a project by doing research, working with directors on script development and finding the best combination of talents for each film. This involvement is what is most essential to Maarten in achieving the highest potential of any idea.
