Tim van den Hoff

Tim van den Hoff (1981) is a Dutch filmmaker with a focus on social issue documentaries both in Europe and the United States.

After receiving a cum laude Master of Arts in Philosophy from Erasmus University Rotterdam and working for Dutch public broadcaster VPRO, he started his own production company in 2011.

Using his academic background, Tim likes to dig for the deeper questions that will inform and structure his documentary work. Themes examined in his films have included public memory, identity formation and knowledge production.

His work has been screened internationally, with his exploration of U.S. Civil War memory, Monumental Crossroads, being used at hundreds of universities across the US. He’s often invited as a guest lecturer to discuss his work and underlying themes.

In 2021 he was selected for a two-week intensive masterclass by legendary film director Werner Herzog, further strengthening the foundations of his cinematic practice.

He’s presently working on a film about Dutch contested heritage, commissioned by public broadcaster NTR.
