Oeke Hoogendijk is an internationally acclaimed documentary maker. She studied stage direction at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht and made her debut with her film documentary The Saved (1998), which won the Dutch Academy Award “Het Gouden Beeld” of 1998 and the “Euro-Comenius Award” in Vienna (1999). Her second film, The Holocaust Experience (2002), had its premiere during IDFA 2002 and was selected for several festivals in Europe and the US. Over a period of ten years Hoogendijk followed the large-scale renovation and re-organisation of the world-famous Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. She turned this material into a four-episode television series and a feature film for the big screen (2014). For this film she received a large number of prizes in the Netherlands and abroad, including the Golden Calf at the Netherlands Film Festival, the Jury Award at the Festival International du Film Montreal, the Prix D’Italia and the Prix du Meilleur Documentaire at the Festival International du Film Montreal, and Best Dutch Documentary at IDFA 2014.
Hoogendijk specializes in documentaries about art. They are often long-running projects with a cinematographic approach that involves capturing the content as much as possible in scenes.
