WELCOME TO SERET AMSTERDAM,
AMSTELVEEN, MAASTRICHT AND UTRECHT

Watch 2016 festival promo >>

SERET International returns to Amsterdam and Amstelveen on 26-31 October for our third Festival of outstanding feature films and documentaries from Israel’s top film makers. And as the 2015 Festival was such as success for us, we’re bringing SERET International to two new locations in The Netherlands, Maasticht and Utrecht.

We will be screening a bigger programme of films, most of which are Dutch premieres, and have been selected as international award winners, and included in top film festivals around the world such as Sundance and Locarno.

The programme gives a glimpse of the world-leading, innovative dynamic and passionate film industry in Israel. It’s an industry that has become more outward-looking, creating great cinema and TV that reflects themes that resonate however and wherever you live, rather than limiting itself to the conflict which so often colours perception of the country.

Our screenings will be at the Amstelveen and Rialto cinemas in Amsterdam, the Lumiere in Maastricht, and the Louis Hartlooper Complex in Utrecht.

All the films have English subtitles.
