Dag van de Amateurfilm 2012

On Friday September 28th the annual ‘Amateur Film Day’ takes place during the Netherlands Film Festival. This year’s theme: ‘congratulations’.

The theme of ‘Congratulations’ allows the Amateur Film Day to celebrate several anniversaries and milestones in the field of amateur film, among which the centenary of the first successful format for the home movie market, 28 mm film. Presentators include collector Brian Giles, Kees Tervoort (NOVA), and Lotte Belice Baltussen (Beeld & Geluid).
