Spotlight on Dutch cinema in Bangkok

October 30, 2012

Cinema from the Netherlands is put in the spotlight in Bangkok at the Dutch Film Festival Thailand which takes place November 5 – 24. The Festival presents a selection of seventeen award winning films from the past ten years, demonstrating the quality, innovation, diversity and openness of contemporary Dutch film.

The programme includes fiction features among which The Happy Housewife by Antoinette Beumer and Simon by Eddy Terstall. Also several documentaries will be screened such as Heddy Honigmann’s Forever and Dutch Light by Pieter Rim-de Kroon. Various short films will be presented as well, like the Oscar winning animation Father and Daughter by Michael Dudok de Wit and Drop Dead by Arne Toonen.

The Festival organizes a special screening of Meet the Fokkens, the documentary by directors Gabrielle Provaas and Rob Schröder that has been very successful with the international press and public since its premiere at last year’s International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. The screening is followed by a symposium on the theme Women, commodified sexuality and prostitution.

The Dutch Film Festival in Thailand is organized in collaboration with EYE Film Institute Netherlands. The Festival takes place at three locations in Bangkok: Goethe Institut (November 5 -8), Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (November 21 -23) and 10th World Film Festival of Bangkok (November 17 – 24).
