Obituary Anita Voorham
The EAVE family mourns the loss of creative producer, writer and script consultant Anita Voorham.
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we received the sad news that Anita passed away recently. She was a beloved member of the EAVE community, EAVE 2018 graduate and EAVE expert, and highly respected professional in the European film industry.
Anita began her career in the writer’s room; story-lining and writing for a number of successful Dutch series, among them “Gooische vrouwen”. She attended the Binger Filmlab as a creative producer, worked as a development executive for Dutch public broadcaster NTR and was invited by Torino FilmLab at its infancy as one of their core tutors. Furthermore, she joined Berlinale Script Station, Venice Biennale Cinema-College, Midpoint and the selection committee for IFFR’s CineMart. She was also a lecturer at EAVE and Midpoint and was a graduate of the EAVE 2018 Producers workshop.
Anita has collaborated on films such as: “Home” by Fien Troch, “Las Herederas” by Marcelo Martinessi, “a Febre” by Maya Darin, “L’Ospite” by Duccio Chiarini, and many others among them “The Fits” by Anna Rose Holmer, “Inexba” by John Trengove, “Touch Me Not” by Adina Pintillie and “A Ciambra” by Jonas Carpignano. She always felt that working on these diverse projects by extraordinary storytellers has been an immensely rewarding expansion of her own life and experiences. Anita is also the coproducer of Fien Trochs latest film “Holly”.
Her rich and varied career was dedicated to supporting singular, original storytellers, exert and reﬁne their voices, develop remarkable projects and attach the right collaborators to successfully ﬁnance, produce and bring these projects to their audiences.
Anita was not only a unique professional, but also a wonderful human being full of warmth and light, whose kindness, sensitivity and humour will be fondly remembered.
Our sincere condolences go out to Anita’s wife, family and friends and those many who were so lucky to meet her in their careers.
Anita, we will miss you immensely!
