My name is Jelmar van Belle. I’m a filmmaker.

Driven by my endless curiosity for knowledge, ideas and (above all) personal stories, my strength lies in transforming those stories and ideas into a film concepts and translating them to the screen.

I’m always trying to think beyond the obvious because that’s where it starts to get interesting. To always analyse and conceptualise is something I learned during my Master Filmstudies at the University of Amsterdam, where I graduated in 2012.
Although I loved studying film, I really missed the creativity and putting something into the world for others to enjoy. That’s when I bought my first camera and started filming, and immediately fell in love.

Fast forward to 2019 and here we are, traveling the world with my filmcamera, meeting the most amazing people and capturing their stories to share with the world.

We all have a story to tell.
Now tell me yours.
