It all started with a book...
The film Sweet Rabbit is based on the story A Sweet Rabbit by Imme Dros. Two years ago director Camiel Schouwenaar read the story that inspired him to make the movie. In a joint venture with award-winning writer Maureen Versprille they wrote the script and decided to make an independent film. They financed the film with the help of Cinecrowd - a crowdfunding platform for independent filmmakers. Producer Smit&Jansen was approached to produce the film and in February 2012 they started shooting.
