Day of the Fraud Investigator
One of our founding partners of the Fraud Film Festival, the IFFC, is organizing the Day of the Fraud Investigator on 18 April 2019 in the Fokker Terminal in The Hague.
Is former property icon Roger Lips a white-collar criminal with debts of more than 500 million euros? And / or are he and his family the victims of malicious practices of conspiring Dutch banks, receivers and courts?
An intriguing investigation into the truth in the ‘blistering war’ between former real estate icon Roger Lips and fraud investigators as a keynote of the Fraud Investigator Day on Thursday, April 18th
“Nothing is the truth and the truth is nothing”
A non-concealing keynote presentation
Investigative journalists Hans Pérukel and Peter Olsthoorn, the makers of this documentary, tell their story and findings during the keynote session.
Subsequently, a discussion with three fascinating experts and the undoubtedly enthusiastic and highly involved public, and various exciting break-out sessions, discuss the various research techniques, risks, obstacles and pitfalls, with questions such as;
- What exactly is truth finding?
- Do different types of researchers yield different truths?
- How independent is the fraud investigator?
- Is public-private collaboration a must or an impassable path?
- Does search work across borders and if so, how does it work?
- How do you do careful research and prevent a witch hunt?
- What ethics and rules are you bound by as a fraud investigator?
At the end of this day you are not only aware of the most important new trends, but you have also gained more insight into the current forms of fraud investigation and truth-finding and you have considerably expanded your network of fraud investigators with interesting professionals from both the government as business and knowledge institutions!
The IFFC looks forward to seeing you (back) on 18 April 2019 at the Fraud Investigator Day in the Fokker Terminal, Binckhorstlaan 249 in The Hague. Here on the website of the IFFC , a founding partner of the Fraud Film Festival, you will find all information and can register.

Main theme 2018: Societal disruption
The main theme of the Fraud Film Festival 2018 is ‘Societal Disruption’. Half of all companies are affected by economic crime and although general statistics show a decrease in crime in the Netherlands, the number of fraud and cybercrime cases are increasing. Fraud is an especially disruptive crime, which weakens or abuses and undermines the very fabric of society. This leads to a deterioration of its foundations and / or the legitimacy of the system that protects it. This type of crime is often committed by criminal organizations and accompanied by violence, threats and intimidation.
Crime that undermines the fabric of our society affects us all. But how do we approach this problem as a society? By bringing together governmental organizations, private companies and the public and by working together!
Call for submissions of films
Are you a filmmaker, film producer or film distributor? And have you completed a feature film, documentary, animation film or short about a topical issue related to fraud, cybercrime, corruption or integrity somewhere in the world? If so, we kindly invite you to submit your film. Please include with your submission a (secure) online screener, trailer and synopsis. The deadline for submissions is Friday 29 June 2018.

Haven’t you seen enough? Or would you like to see your favorite documentary again? This is possible! During a FFF Inhouse a current documentary is combined with a panel discussion or expert session. These sessions focus on helping organisations to create awareness around topics related to fraud and corruption for their own audience.
Fraud Film Festival On Tour
On Thursday, June 22, the Fraud Film Festival went on “On Tour”. During this inspiring evening, we showed the documentary ‘Abacus: Small Enough to Jail’ in Theater Film Cafe De Lieve Vrouw in Amersfoort. This documentary tells the story of the immigrant family Sung, owners of the Abacus bank in the New York Chinatown. The small bank is the only US bank who has been prosecuted for mortgage fraud during the economic crisis. A very interesting story and in our opinion, a successful and fun evening!
