In 1921, a long-cherished dream of Anton Pieter du Mee came true: he opened his own cinema on the Ceintuurbaan in the Amsterdam Pijp: Rialto. After years of planning and preparation, and exactly a century after the opening of Rialto, the next big dream is coming true: the opening of Rialto VU.
Rialto VU is a brand new theater, located in a new building on the campus of the VU at De Boelelaan 1111. With four state-of-the-art screening rooms, Rialto VU will not only contribute to the cultural life on the VU Campus, the arrival of Rialto VU also establishes a great cultural enrichment for local residents in Buitenveldert, the Zuidas and Amstelveen, among others.
The 11th edition of WCA is scheduled for this summer - from 19 to 28 August - in Rialto, De Balie and Rialto VU, with the best films from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
