Special Screenings

 

World Cinema Amsterdam presents a lot of amazing films in the Competition programme and also as part of the Open Air screenings. But there are many other beautiful films that the festival would like to make available for its audience, which World Cinema does through the Special Screenings section.

 

World Cinema Premières

Alongside the competition, the festival screens a number of titles that have their Dutch première during World Cinema Amsterdam. These are films that will be later released in Dutch theatres. These are thus pre-premières!
