Pluk de Nacht open air film festival

The popular free open-air cinema is back! Pluk de Nacht doesn't just focus on one genre or film-style in particular, but rather, a mix of anything from romantic comedies and cult classics to blockbuster action and independent documentaries await visitors. 

Outdoor film festival by night

Pluk de Nacht (Seize the Night) is an outdoor film festival by night, dedicated to sharing films that haven’t been aired in Dutch cinemas, or which have only reached a very small audience.

All year long, members of the Pluk de Nacht organisation visit international film festivals to carefully select the best cinematic works. You can expect anything to hit the screen; from tragic rural documentaries, absurd romantic comedies and animations to road movies.

Pluk de Nacht will make the following appearances:

  • July 31-August 4: Nijverheidsweg 4, 3534 AM Utrecht
  • August 14-25: Het Stenen Hoofd, Westerdoksdijk 705-C, 1013 BX  Amsterdam.

Pluk de Nacht programme

Every year, Pluk de Nacht manages to create a surprising programme with various attractions that go beyond the big screen. Earlier editions of the festival saw orchestras playing the soundtracks of short films, interesting themed nights and a focus on films from specific countries. Young artists are offered a platform in more ways than just film screenings, making the festival a place where you can experience all kinds of initiatives.

Free access at Pluk de Nacht

Admission to this outdoor summer film festival is absolutely free, and it serves as a meeting place for lovers of film, art and new media, as well as food, drinks and parties.

There are beautiful, vintage-style deck chairs to lounge on. If you want to donate to the festival you can reserve a chair, and make a donation of your choice. You can also rent a blanket to keep you warm.

Choose your English-language films

Most screened films are English-language or provided with English subtitles. Check out the Pluk de Nacht website and plan your night out at the movies!
