Movies that Matter Festival 2024

The Movies that Matter Festival 2024 will take place from 22 to 30 March at Filmhuis Den Haag and Theater aan het Spui. We will also be at various guest locations in the city and satellite locations throughout the Netherlands. The programme will be announced in the run-up to the festival and ticket sales will start on Thursday 7 March.

What can you expect during our festival?

  • A film selection from some 90 human rights films: from short to feature length, from fiction to documentary
  • Special in-depth programmes around human rights, with activists, filmmakers and experts from the field.

And further:

  • Various competitions, in which films compete for various prizes, which we present at our annual Award Night, open to all.
  • Special themes make it easy to find your way through the programme.
  • For 80% of the films, we have context programming: introductions, post-screening talks and various specials such as dance performances.
  • We engage with human rights activists, experts, experts by experience and our audience.
    Meeting is central. Whether in the auditorium or at the bar after the film.
