Cinema dinner at the Netherlands Short Film Festival at Papa’s Beach House in Hoofddorp
Dine and watch films between sessions during the Netherlands Short Film Festival. The unique Dutch film festival, the best of the year!
Papa’s Beach House is participating in the Netherlands Short Film Festival this year.
The Dutch short film will also be available at Merlet in Schoorl, Duin, Kruidberg in Santpoort-Noord, IJkgebouw, The Fallon Hotel in Alkmaar, Eendracht in Hilversum and many other restaurants in Hoorn, Velsen, Amstelveen, Purmerend, Heerhugowaard and Bergen. The festival is celebrated from January 12 to 21, offering guests a film menu featuring exquisite dishes and beautiful short films from all over the world, from professional and amateur filmmakers.
Preliminary selection has now been made from over 400 entries. There are films from the Netherlands, the United States, Korea, China, France, Iran, Mexico, Italy, the United Kingdom and Georgia. A nice group of contestants were selected for the movie dinner. Films are a maximum of 15 minutes long, but there are also very short 2-minute films.
Short films are screened, with an emphasis on comedies and high-spirited films. In January, the official festival takes place throughout the North Netherlands during Blue Monday.
Previous editions in Bergen have been organized by Peter Bosman. “Watching films during dinner creates a special atmosphere, as people start talking to each other, it’s a really great evening, everyone has plenty of food for conversation. The visitors were all very excited. Since there are so many different short films, there is always something that catches your attention.” Plus, you see movies you don’t see anywhere else. Very special, highly recommended.’
Watching movies and eating create a special atmosphere. In between movies, you can enjoy Papa’s Beach House food and talk about movies with your friends. There is limited space, and an evening ticket costs €49.95. This includes movies and the deluxe menu (excluding drinks). Tickets can be ordered via www.hollandfilmfestival.nl, and the screening starts at 6pm.
The selection of films was a surprise. There is at least one winner from last year. The films are all special.
