How sad I was to read the news that Wouter has passed away. It's just shocking - he was so young. My heart goes out to Michael and Nicole along with everyone at Fortissimo who loved him. What a sad loss for our industry too. That smile of his will be missed.
I was surprised and saddened by the news of the sudden death of Wouter Barendrecht. I had not seen him in some years, but I have marvellous recollections of this then young, handsome and enthusiastic man, whom I first met in Rotterdam and then again in New York and Rio. At least, his death was sudden, without illness, suffering or degradation. Antonio Rodrigues Cinemateca Portugesa/Portuguese Film Archive
Dear Wouter, it was really a pleasure to meet and work with you. The "beautiful cinema" family will miss you.

We are very saddened and grieved by the unexpected passing of Wouter. If there was ever a person who fit the nickname ‘the flying Dutchman’ it would be Wouter, as he travelled the world in search of cinematic gems. We have genuine and great admiration for what he has done and built, and will be sadly missed for what he was yet to achieve. We wish his family, Nelleke, Ellis, everybody at Fortissimo and his friends strength in this time of grief.
My deepest condolence to all @ Fortissimo... Wouter will be dearly missed...
