Hotel Mokum

Yannesh Meijman

Yannesh Meijman is a self-taught director, producer, and editor born and raised in Amsterdam. His youthful socio-poetic work is driven by a yearning for community, urban resistance, and dreams. Through subjective storytelling, glitching signals, and embracing cracks, he makes films both as a critique and ode to Amsterdam.

His debut documentary film Hotel Mokum, produced by HALAL & Radio Voorwaarts, will have its world premiere during IDFA in the Frontlight section.

Yannesh’s earlier work “Geen Plek” (2022) was selected for the Go Short Film Festival. As a producer, his film “Incendios” (2021) was selected for the Netherlands Film Festival and the Festival International du Film d’Aubagne. Moreover, he is the co-founder of Radio Voor­waarts – an art collective and platform that showcases under­ground and inter­disciplinary arts & music, with a particular interest in alternative sub­cultures and their pre­carious place in an increasingly hostile urban environment.
