CEO - Odelia Haroush
SERET Netherlands 2020 runs from 3-10th Nov. This is our sixth Israeli Film Festival in The Netherlands, and we have screenings in Amsterdam and Amstelveen.
This year’s SERET Netherlands 2020 includes the cream of the new productions from talented Israeli film makers. There are award-winning debuts from first-time feature film makers, and big movies from some of Israel’s most internationally respected masters.
There is an eclectic mix of features and documentaries mirroring the diversity of modern Israel. The Festival programme delves into Israeli political milestones and fractures; examines the effects of living and loving in a time of war; shares universal fears about childlessness and meeting new challenges as our lives change.
We’re looking forward to sharing them with you.
For those who feel they are not yet confident in visiting the cinema, we also have a virtual festival across the same dates, showing a pre-selected bundle of excellent films to be seen on home screens, purchased through our website.
