This part is housed in the new Boutique Cinema of the Filmhuis Den Haag. The room offers a different experience than a standard cinema thanks to the state-of-the-art projection and the furnishings with comfortable velvet lounge chairs and benches. Cushions, rugs, and tables complete the feeling of a living room. Due to its intimate atmosphere, this unique space is ideally suited as a place where young aspiring filmmakers can watch these short films and enter into dialogue with each other and the filmmakers. The movies are shown in two-hour cycles throughout the weekends. Afterwards, the viewers will also vote for the winner of the New Talents Competition.
