Eastern Neighbours Film Festival 2019 (until 10 November)

Eastern Neighbours Film Festival presents the best recent films from East and South East Europe, from the countries with a small but often powerful film industry. This concerns film productions that cannot be seen in the Netherlands, or only to a very limited extent. Why Eastern Neighbours? The ENFF strives to get the Dutch and international audience in the Netherlands acquainted with the cinema and culture of their eastern neighbours.
