Women in Film post #metoo  (14:00 – 15:30)

One of the most striking discussions in the film world in recent years has been the one about #metoo. In a panel discussion with Jennifer O’Conell (artistic director of the Women’s Film Festival, Assen), the department of Cultural Sciences at Maastricht University, film director Kim Hotterbeekx and  Maria Vatista from Meet Maastricht we will discuss current developments concerning the representation of women in the film world and culture and ask whether, thanks to this attention, a shift has actually taken place in the film climate.

Short Film Competition 2 (16:00 – 17:30)

Enjoy an afternoon full with a series of short movies with the theme Shift in Tolerance.

Made in Limburg, incl. 88 Hour Mobile premières en Award Show (19:30-22:00)

In just 88 hours, filmmakers have to make a film made with their phone with the specific topic and an object. On November 17 we will screen the final result of this experiment.  Awards have to be celebrated, that’s why we close the festival with a drink!

Do you like to participate in all events? No worries! We have a Passe-partout ticket for two days (all 5 events).
