He wants further explanation on his decision: “That is too finicky.” He argues not necessarily against the Academy system, which three years ago was introduced. “It is just as good or bad as a judging system. What is important is that the festival is the Dutch film and deep into the provinces penetrates. I think it could be better.”
The new voting system was three years ago. People who are a part of the film industry can become a member of the Academy and votes for the Golden Calves. This new system, gemodelleeerd to the Oscars, for three years back the jury system that previously a lot of criticism was given.
