Where and when is the festival?

Every year, in early autumn, the Netherlands Film Festival (NFF) takes place in Utrecht. For nine days, Utrecht is transformed into the film capital of the Netherlands, where the full and new breadth of Dutch cinema gets the podium it deserves. The 39th edition of the Netherlands Film Festival takes place from 27 September to 5 October 2019.

Our international Professionals Programme (Holland Film Meeting) will be held from 29 September to 1 October 2019. Join this inspiring event now, and make Utrecht your new starting point in exploring what Dutch film, tv and interactive media have to offer.


What are the festival locations?

The NFF takes place at multiple locations in Utrecht. All festival locations are located close to one another and just a 10 minute-walk from Utrecht CS. The Stadsschouwburg Utrecht will be transformed into a Professionals Hub where international professionals can attend the Holland Film Meeting. Come meet us there between 29 September Р1 October!


Tickets for films, parties and other NFF events can be ordered online from the beginning of September. During the festival tickets can also be bought at the box offices at various festival locations.
