Netherlands Film Festival 2014Festivals / Utrecht
24 September - 03 October, Various
The Netherlands Film Festival is back in Utrecht, screening both fan-favourites from the previous year, hosting world premieres and of course announcing the winner of the top prize in the Dutch film industry, the Golden Calf!
Going Hollywood in Utrecht
The Netherlands Film Festival is the largest event focused solely on the Dutch film industry. Each year the event brings many thousands of people to the premieres, galas and screenings of the best Dutch films of the previous year.
With Dutch language films receiving relatively little exposure abroad, the Netherlands Film Festival is an important platform for Dutch directors and actors to establish themselves among a domestic audience.
That being said, the event always has a touch of glamour with red-carpet events, talk shows, debates and parties.
In terms of films, the festival screens and judges a variety of genres including feature length films, animation, short films, television dramas and art-house flicks.
For the first time, the festival will take place in a new home: the TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht. In this massive building the excitement will grow as the top prize in Dutch language film, the Golden Calf, is presented to the best picture of the year!
Premieres at the Netherlands Film Festival
This year the festival will be hosting five feature length premieres. To be clear, the films are in Dutch with no English subtitles!
