Every session, you can watch short films straight from our Official Selection, followed by a ‘gezellige’ Q&A with the teams. The Sessions are English spoken, and the films are subtitled in English.
After each screening, we interview the team behind the film and get to know more about their process and vision.
The special guest for this session will be announced soon! Stay Tuned!

Jaap encourages his wife to give their son some space, with comedic and uncomfortably painful situations.
