Musical Film Festival

On 5 and 6 June in the De Roode Cinema, Amsterdam.

During this festival, ten classic French and Hollywood musicals will be screened. The productions range from 1935 to 2016 and show both the advances in the film industry and a changing society in the positive way that is typical of musicals. The film festival is inspired by Parisian cinemas and the training of the Nouvelle Vague directors in the Cinémateque.

This first edition shows films based on the references in La La Land , according to the director's philosophy: to be part of the future, you have to know the history. So this event combines entertainment with education in the most optimistic way!
