Gong marks 5th World Cinema Amsterdam edition
World Cinema Amsterdam sounds the gong to mark the start of the 5th edition of the festival.
Twelve days in a row (till August 24) visitors can enjoy the best independently produced films from Latin America, Asia and Africa in Rialto and De Balie. World Cinema Amsterdam Open Air is traditionally a popular feature. As in the previous year, four new films are screened at Marie Heinekenplein in Amsterdam. The films from Brazil, Uruguay and Mexico tell stories about ordinary and quite extraordinary people who try to keep going in their current situation. Tito Rodriguez Torras and Veerle Snijders, responsible for marketing and communications, sound the gong.
