November 15 – 17, 2019
The city of peace and justice celebrates the art of filmmaking with The Hague Global Cinema Festival. Independent filmmakers and all film lovers are welcome to join us in 3 days of exciting events. In addition to live screening of some of the selected work, there are opportunities for networking and listening to some distinguished speakers from the film world. We offer celebrations for all who have a passion for filmmaking and for film viewing. If you enjoy and have courage to experiment, here is the place for you to showcase your work. We are overwhelmed with the response of filmmakers in our first year: around 900 submissions from over 85 countries.
Our theme is “People’s Choice”. Our jury consists of filmmakers, artistes, film lovers and curators from Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and, of course, The Hague. A rightfully “People’s Choice”. Filmhuis Den Haag will screen the best of selection on 16 November 2019. “Sex. Drugs and Bicycles”, a film based on the life in The Netherlands will have its Nederlands premiere.
