Hoi!
Okki Poortvliet grew up in a small village in the north of the Netherlands. There she shot her graduation film in 2021 for Minerva art academy: IJswee (longing for ice). A film about how villagers, with a passion for skating on natural ice, deal with the increasingly warmer winters. After that, she made four short films for NTR. At the moment she is either studying Philosphy (at the university of Groningen), filming and building for new projects (De Vlaggenhijsers & Wildrooster), illustrating or spending time running around and trying to play the guitar. It is also clear that she has a thing for birds and ice rinks.
