Holland Film Meeting

The Netherlands Film Festival is the most extensive meeting place for Dutch AV-professionals. Within the framework of the festival, the Holland Film Meeting builds bridges between the Dutch and international worlds of film, tv, and interactive media. Together, we broaden our horizons by exchanging knowledge, exploring projects, and finding our audiences of the future.
