"Smarthouse = commercial arthouse and vice versa, linking music, arts and graphic design into the world of film."

Smarthouse is founded by Danielle Guirguis, who was involved in films such as Komt een Vrouw Bij de Dokter, De Gelukkige huisvrouw en Zwartboek. In co-production with the International Film Festival Rotterdam Smarthouse has produced six short international films, which premiered at IFFR in 2016 and has traveled the international festival world ever since. The documentary The Last Sea Gypsy is currently in post-production and this summer our first feature film La Holandesa, shot in Chile, will premiere in cinemas. Two new documentaries and a feature film are in development.
