These films were the first ones to tell their story from an insider’s perspective, paving the way for a new generation of filmmakers to share their stories and to let other voices be heard. Therefore, the films selected for this year’s festival shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to the history of cinema in the Netherlands.
