Twentie Four: 24 minutes behind the scenes
Limited Capacity seats available

Linda Vermaat and Erik Loots are convinced that entrepreneurship will solve most of our global challenges. In the beginning of 2016 they started Twentie Four, an international documentary series and in 2017 a Youtube channel. They are following 24 impact entrepreneurs in 24 cities worldwide for 24 hours. Pioneers, greedy for a kind of world where obvious issues such as climate change, gender inequality and poverty are tackled. Get a first glimpse of the documentary and engage in a Q&A with these two filmmakers.  

About the makers

Linda started the slow food Youth Food Movement NL and founded Professional Rebel to ignite the rebel mind-set within large organisations. Erik studied film in Brussels and Amsterdam and has visualised stories for Adidas, MTV and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
