UNICA Medal of Honour


Portrait of Ben Teeninga.

He became a chairman of his film club and a member of committee of the Dutch national organisation in the eighties. He was an active film maker.

For over 25 years he has taken care of the film library of NOVA - the Dutch national organisation of amateur film makers. He has done this with great dedication and love. Through his knowledge and experience he gives support to students, tv makers, film clubs, writers etc. Currently he is taking care of the gradual digitisation of the stock in the national film library.

Because of his great knowledge of the medium he is frequently asked to serve as a jury member, though because of his modest nature he is not keen on acting in the foreground.

He is a regular participant at the UNICA festivals and has many international contacts from Belgium to Georgia and from Spain to Germany.
