Nederlands Film Festival

Nederlands Film Festival

Sep 27, 2018Oct 05, 2018

The Nederlands Film Festival is back in Utrecht, screening fan-favourites from the previous cinema year, hosting world premieres and of course announcing the winner of the top prize in the Dutch film industry, the Golden Calf!

Celebrating Dutch cinema in Utrecht

The Nederlands 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 from the previous year.

With Dutch language films receiving relatively little exposure abroad, the Nederlands Film Festival is an important platform for Dutch directors and actors to establish themselves among a domestic audience. That being said, the occasion 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. Numerous international festival programmers, distributors, TV programmers and producers attend the festival to keep abreast of developments in Dutch cinema.

NFF English

NFF proudly introduces ‘NFF English’, a programme specifically designed to be  accessible for non-Dutch speakers, encompassing all films, talks, presentations and events that are accessible to English speakers. ‘NFF English’ is made up of subtitled Dutch blockbusters and auteur films, original English spoken films by Dutch film makers, interesting talks, interactive exhibitions and festive events.
