Breaking Ground EU

On Thursday June 12 we return to Kriterion in Amsterdam, for what is already the last BG EU programme of this season. Before we can all enjoy another great Dutch summer, we treat you to four of the best student films from the continent. One of the these films happens to be the winner of our Breaking Short competition during the Go Short Internat. Short Filmfestival 2014: Nacht Grenze Morgen (Two at the Border) by Felicitas Sonvilla and Tuna Kaptan.

Our special guest of the night is journalist and director Simonka de Jong (The Only Son, Tsjechisch Kerstfeest). Together with our moderator, Frans van der Groen, she will discuss the films.

The compelte program:
Nacht Grenze Morgen (Two at the Border) by Felicitas Sonvilla and Tuna Kaptan
