Language No Problem
In Louis Hartlooper and Springhaver you can see the best foreign language films with English subtitles, at our monthly screenings: Language No Problem. This means that people who don’t understand Dutch can now also enjoy a French, Dutch, Italian or Danish production. The selection for this programme is not random. We will always choose a film we feel is a must-see for everyone. For example the 2018 Golden Lion, Golden Globe and Oscar winner Roma by Alfonso Cuarón, or the other foreign language Oscar contender Capharnaüm by Nadine Labaki. As always films from Britain or the US will still be shown in their original language with Dutch subtitles.
