Breaking Ground at the Netherlands Film Festival!

Every year the Netherlands Film Festival brings us the best new Dutch films made that year. There is also a big focus on new talent. Where there's new film talent, there's Breaking Ground. Dutch talent has a big place at the NFF and international talent is just as important. Breaking Ground will screen five of the most remarkable European student films made in the last years. All of which have never before been screened in the Netherlands. So if you're looking for great new films, make sure to attend the screening on Monday 29th in cinema 't Hoogt 1 at 21:00 !

NPO Cultura shows Breaking Ground content! 

NPO Cultura is the platform for art and culture of the Dutch Public Broadcasters (NPO). This online channel brings programming about art in all its forms.

During the coming week, NPO Cultura is also celebrating Dutch film during the Netherlands Film Festival. Of course Breaking Ground couldn't resist to team up for this special programming. We've gone through our archives and have selected 13 of the best Dutch student films we've screened in the last couple of years.

Tune in at NPO Cultura on Sunday 28th at 21:45 and on Tuesday 30th at 21:35 and you’re bound to see some quality student work. Reruns througout the week!
