Filmmaker Jason van Genderen is obsessed with making home videos about his mother, accidentally turning her into an online celebrity.
Filmmaker Jason van Genderen is obsessed with making home videos about his family, and their Dutch matriarch, Oma. He and his wife Megan embrace caring for Oma’s dementia in increasingly whimsical ways, accidentally turning her into an online celebrity. Their unassuming home videos, shot during the pandemic, attract over 100,000,000 views globally. Everybody’s Oma follows in the NSW Central Coast family’s footsteps as they navigate Oma’s failing health under the spotlight of an enthusiastic audience of well-meaning strangers.

JASON VAN GENDEREN premiered My Town is Broken at SFF 2008. His debut feature Everybody's Oma premieres at SFF 14 years later. In between, his shorts have won awards around the world.
