Festival director Vanja Kaludjercic: “The announcement of our full festival programme is always an exciting moment and this year is no exception. After the tough decision to move our festival online, we've curated a wonderful online selection for our audiences here in the Netherlands, whilst also ensuring that our competition lineups and the filmmakers who trusted us with their premieres will be given a platform within our Press & Industry Selection. When cinemas are allowed to open again, we will present competition titles on the big screen to our audiences later in the year.”
