Shortcutz Amsterdam

offers a platform where up-and-coming film talents can promote their work, connect with professionals from the film industry and meet film enthusiasts, in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

Every Tuesday evening from September to November we invite you to watch great short films by up-and-coming directors in the 'De Kring' club, take part in Q&A sessions and meet all these talents – all while enjoying of a cold drink.

To connect the international community of the city with Dutch cinema, all films are subtitled in English and Q&A sessions are held in English. The sessions are free, with a suggested donation of €2 to keep us going.
Film industry heroes such as producer Jan Harlan (The Shining), Director Creative Talent Investment & Development for Netflix International Originals Christopher Mack, and director Hany Abu-Assad (The Mountain Between Us) make up the JuryTeam.
