The directors
Page 23 is a shortfilm by Jeroen Houben, Tim Arts and Stefan van den Boogaard. Jeroen Houben (Haelen, 1987) works in Amsterdam as freelance director and producer of shortfilms, advertisements and documentaries. Stefan van den Boogaard (1984) en Tim Arts (1985) work at the advertising company Mortierbrigade in Brussels. They were all educated at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, and worked as interns at the advertising agency Habbekrats - which was recently awarded with a Golden Calf (the most important Dutch film prize) for their movie Rabat.

Page 23 is only their first shortfilm, but they managed to impress both the jury and the audience of the 48 Hour Film Project. Besides the award for Best Film and the Audience Award, the film was also awarded the prize for Best Editing. The film was nominated in the categories Best Directing, Best Actor, Best Art Direction and Best Use Of Line.
