Just like every year, World Cinema Amsterdam 2021 will also take place at Rialto De Pijp and De Balie. But there is more! The program can also be seen for the first time this year at Rialto VU, a brand new theater on the VU campus at De Boelelaan 1111.
In addition, special pop-up performances take place in various places: OSCAM, LantarenVenster en de Bijlmerbios.

WCA x LantarenVenster
The Rotterdam film and music theater LantarenVenster has maintained warm relationships for years. So it was logical to organize a number of WCA films in this beautiful theater on the Wilhelminapier again this year.
On Sunday 22 August there will be two WCA films, two films from the Actual Africa programme:
19.00 Aloe Vera

WCA x Bijlmerbios
On Sunday, 5 September, the Bijlmerbios open-air cinema will be showing one of the films from the Actual Africa programme: the romantic comedy Aloe Vera by Ghanaian director Peter Sedufia. A love story under the stars! Can it get any better?
Where is the Bijlmerbios located?
Bijlmerbios is a free open air cinema initiated in 2005 and has been taking place since 2015 under the Kraaiennest metro station. Bijlmerbios shows films that – in the broadest sense of the word – have a relationship with the Bijlmer.
