In 2019, Rialto presented the 10th edition of World Cinema Amsterdam, our annual festival dedicated to non-western cinema. Preparations for the 11th edition in 2020 were in full swing when the corona crisis struck worldwide. After considering all aspects, unfortunately Rialto had to decide to cancel the 2020 edition. The restrictive measures make it impossible to organize a fully-fledged, attractive film festival this August.
The festival is alive though, which is why we are already focussing on August 2021. In the meantime we will of course continue to pay a lot of attention to the many beautiful films from Africa, Asia and Latin America.
