Come to the Amsterdam Film Festival
The Amsterdam Film Festival is a cutting-edge cultural event in the city that has developed into one of Europe's most exciting artistic celebrations. Established in 2010, the inclusive film festival in Amsterdam celebrates movies and directors from over 90 countries each year.
Tourists visiting for the festival can stay at the excellently positioned Radisson Blu hotel Amsterdam which will put them at the heart of the city's art scene and cultural heartland.
Film Festival Competitions
Placing an emphasis on cinematic artistry and progressive techniques, Amsterdam Film Festival has helped foster emerging movie talent since its inception. The festival runs competitions in all kinds of cinematic categories, with documentaries, short films, feature-length movies and even music videos catered for.
Previous winners of these Van Gogh awards include innovative filmmaker Steve Bellamy for the critically acclaimed 'Winter' and 'The Secret Friend' director Flavio Alves. The film festival in Amsterdam also runs a screenwriting competition that is aimed at encouraging non-professional and original writers to enter their work and hopefully attract some industry attention.
The Amsterdam Film Festival is a great opportunity for both locals and tourists to delve into the often overlooked category of world cinema and attend movies when the event is staged in the city.
