    Meneer Papier gaat uit wandelen (Steven de Beul & Ben Tesseur, NL 2018)

    It’s nice outside. Mister Paper goes out for a walk. He cuts everything he needs from a few old newspapers. A hat to keep the sun off, and a dog to keep him company. It’s going to be a great day!

  • still Fata morgana (Frodo Kuipers, NL 2011)

    Fata morgana (Frodo Kuipers, NL 2011)

    In the baking hot desert, Eduardo, a thirsty lemonade seller, fights against the temptation to drink the last bottle of lemonade himself. When a parched customer arrives at his stall, Eduardo has a fiendish idea.

  • still De kast (Maarten Koopman, NL 1988)

    De kast (Maarten Koopman, NL 1988)

    While the people sleep at night, the objects in the cupboard make music. But a troublesome cat threatens to disrupt their concert.

  • still Tom Poes in dromenland (Henk Kabos, NL 1949)

    Tom Poes in dromenland (Henk Kabos, NL 1949)

    An advertising film for radios, in the form of an animation with Mr Ollie B. Bommel and Tom Poes the cat, well-known characters from the books by Marten Toonder. Mr Bommel, tired of having to endlessly practice on his violin, has a vision that shows him the way to musical paradise. His radio set plays a crucial role in this.

  • still A Single Life (Job, Joris & Marieke, NL 2014)

    A Single Life (Job, Joris & Marieke, NL 2014)

    Animated film in which placing a single on an old record player does extremely strange things with time. It turns out this brings both advantages and disadvantages: just as the main character thinks she’s about to take control of her life, the record jumps – with far-reaching consequences.

  • still Inkt (Erik Verkerk & Joost van den Bosch, NL 2020)

    Inkt (Erik Verkerk & Joost van den Bosch, NL 2020)

    In this ultra-short animated film, we follow a squid who likes cleaning and tidying up – but even with that many arms, some things stay just out of reach.

  • Flipboekje maken (30')

    After watching the films, you can stay in the cinema and make a flip book. A flip book is a little book with a small drawing that changes a little from page to page. When you flip through the book with your thumb, the drawings flash by really quickly, combining together to give the impression of a film. So with this flip book you’re actually making your own mini-cartoon!

All children must be accompanied. Filmmagie is not suitable for children’s parties.
