NOORDERZON SPECIALThursday 15 August
Wansmakelijk Goed Filmhuisje
In samenwerking met VERA Zienema
For the second year Noorderzon will include Wasmakelijk Goed, with our unconventional, little cinema. The program contains short films that don’t always fit in with the (big) crowd. From horror, to drama, to comedy; everything is thematised by ”distaste”. Submerge yourself in the world of unusual film and be surprised!
• 15 – 19 August
• 16:00 – 23:45 (a new film every half hour)
• €4,00 per film
