CEO - Odelia Haroush
This year’s festival will be held from 25th-31st October
We are going to be running a hybrid festival this year. For those who want to enjoy SERET Netherlands 2021 on the big screen, we will show our program in three different cities: Amstelveen, Amsterdam and Maastricht. We’ve partnered with the Rialto cinema in Amsterdam and will be showing our films in BOTH cinemas – Rialto De Pijp and the brand new cinema Rialto VU.
If you’d rather watch at home, you can pay and download every film through our website too, or purchase a package of 3 films to watch during the festival.
7th Anniversary Special:
To mark our 7th anniversary, we have prepared a special segment:
100 Meters Apart – 4 short films
During the COVID-19 lockdown in Israel, no-one, other than key workers and for essential journeys, could move further than 100 meters from their front door.
At this time of restriction, under very difficult conditions and with no idea of what the future would bring, Kastina Communications produced real time short films with 12 prominent film makers, creating a touching anthology.
SERET has selected four of these short films, each of which expresses a unique response to the challenges which everyone throughout the world has been confronted with over the past 18 months.
