Language No Problem
In Springhaver you can see the best foreign language films with English subtitles, at our Language No Problem (LNP) screenings. This means that people who don’t understand Dutch can also enjoy a French, Dutch, Italian or Danish production, and more. The selection for this programme is not random. We will always choose a film we feel is a must-see for everyone. As always films from Britain or the US will still be shown in their original language with Dutch subtitles.
