Regisseur Jeroen Houben op de filmset van de film De Matchmaker


Jeroen Houben (1987) is a writer/director based in Amsterdam.

The son of a television and camera salesman, Jeroen's fascination with cinema began at an early age. He shot his first film at 8 years old and never looked back. A graduate in both graphic design (Eindhoven 2007) and film (WdKA Rotterdam 2011), his work is characterised by distinctive art direction and understated comic performance.

Jeroen has directed TV-commercials for IKEA, ALBERT HEIJN, LAY'S and 3FM, and made music videos for DE JEUGD VAN TEGENWOORDIG, YELLOW CLAW, RONNIE FLEX, SEF and YOUNG & SICK.

Jeroen wrote and directed several internationally acclaimed short films. In 2013, SORRY won the UPC Fiction Award at the Netherlands Film Festival. In 2015, HOME SUITE HOME and PLASTER both premiered there in the Golden Calf competition and later premiered online on NOWNESS and Short Of The Week.

2018 sees the release of Jeroen's feature debut THE MATCHMAKER which he wrote and directed.
