World Cinema Amsterdam returns to the Dutch capital for its fifth edition, bringing audiences some of the best films from Latin America, Asia and Africa!

Representative of the festival's mantra, they seek to expose European audiences to the gems of the non-Western film worlds through an official competition, special areas of focus and the fan-favourite Open Air Cinema series. 

With the festival's heart in Rialto, the screenings now draw more than 13.000 film enthusiasts.

Furthermore, after the festival is over, the films continue touring the Netherlands and Europe, often due to the ratings and exposure that they received during World Cinema Amsterdam.
