completed her bachelor degrees in American Studies and co-founded production company CCCP.tv in 1994. She produced documentaries for Dutch public broadcasters AVRO and NTR, as well as studio programs for Dutch commercial networks like RTL4 and RTL5. She left CCCP.tv in 2000 and dedicated herself to the executive production of independent, creative documentaries at Zeppers Film & TV in Amsterdam. Over the next 13-year period, Zeppers Film evolved from producing a handful of films per year – such as André Hazes - She Believes In Me, winner of the Joris Ivens Award at the IDFA 1999 – to making over 10 productions per year for TV and cinema.
In 2013 Cerutti Film got off to a flying start. She co-produced two 50-minute films with Dutch public broadcasters Human and VPRO and two youth documentaries for VPRO and NCRV. Willemijn Cerutti Film added youth documentaries as a genre to her skill set and aims to further develop this. The power of telling true stories in film is undeniably strong in the eyes of Cerutti’s young audience, including her own daughters.
