Normally, we tell you all about the best viewing tips for the coming month. In our What to watch in …, we give you the best film and series tips every month. This month, you don’t need to transform your home into a cinema: from 19 to 28 August, we will be transforming Utrecht into one big cinema. So here is an overview of what to see at QFFU!
We start with a cult classic at the opening of the festival: the Rocky Horror Picture Show! Of course we can’t watch this fantastic film without a fantastic side programme… The opening night will end with a Cruise Control party in the Helling. Classic and unexpected, they will turn the Helling on its head. Make it late, but not too late: the next day there are three new films on the programme.
A very special programme awaits you at Villa Concordia. We will transform it into a Queer Villa from 24 to 28 August. This collaboration between QFFU, Villa Concordia and Savannah Bay promises to be a full and, above all, fun programme. The five-day programme is part of the Utrecht 900th anniversary celebrations and is open to everyone!
The short films chosen for the 10 Minute Challenge will also be on show throughout the week at the 10 Minute Hub on the Nieuwegracht 205. Here, from 22 to 26 August, the public can admire two of the submitted films every evening. During the festive finale on 28 August, the winner will be announced, chosen by the public and our professional jury. The jury consists of none other than Bart Peters, Lazlo & Dylan Tonk, Nadia Leijdesdorff and Simone Versteeg! In short, you don’t want to miss this evening. Nothing to do before then? Then come along to our screening of Anne+ the film, where one of the makers Valerie Bisscheroux will be giving a Q&A about filmmaking, queer representation and Anne+.
And besides all these titles, there is much, much more to see and do throughout Utrecht. Check out the full programme here! And psst… You can order your tickets here! Besides reading this what to see at QFFU, we hope to see you at the festival. See you there!
