Imagine Film Festival

12 - 22 April 2017

From the 12th until the 22nd of April, the annual Imagine Film Festival will once again descend upon EYE. Imagine is all about the imagination. Go see an extraordinary film and visit unknown worlds, or be surprised by a completely new reality!

The festival presents an exceptional selection of the most recent crop of genre films, which are fantastic in every aspect. Besides a film programme of about 50 feature films and 40 shorts, there are also plenty of introductions, Q&A’s and discussions.

Imagine hosts a wealth of events: cinema meets the arts at a special Imagine edition of EYE on Art, silent movie Häxan gets a modern score at our film concert and gems from the past shine in cult double bill Cinema Egzotik. VR films can be experienced at Imagine as well: fly through the universe or survive a herd of bloodthirsty zombies!

The Best of Imagine is back on Saturday, April 22nd, showing the best attended and highest rated films of the festival.

With its Fantastic Fashion theme programme, Imagine focuses on the role that costumes and styling play in creating a fantastic illusion. Come and make masks, see how film prosthetics are created or learn all about film costumes during the masterclass of Oscar winner Lindy Hemming. Blogger Tim Hanley will present a talk about superheroine Wonder Woman.

For film makers and professionals, Imagine is hosting the European Genre Forum, a training cycle for young European filmmakers. There is also Imagine NL, a programme in which the festival offers knowledge and a platform to Dutch (prospective) filmmakers. With lots of new work, lots of makers, but also a masterclass and a pitch contest.

Ticket sale starts Thursday 23th of March, at 10 a.m.
