Stichting ArtTrace Foundation
About Stichting ArtTrace FoundationEastern Neighbors Film Festival was started in Utrecht in 2008 by a group of friends with the aim of presenting the Dutch public with the most recent, exciting films from the Eastern and Southeast European country. These are mainly countries with a small but powerful film production. Why eastern neighbours? We feel that cinema can bring people closer together, make them understand each other's culture better and deeper, give them a glimpse into the mentality and history. Our goal is to bring cultures together to create more knowledge and tolerance.
The festival is not only an event with high-quality cinema. It's much more than that. We have specially designed the entire festival to initiate networking, new partnerships and create unforgettable moments for every participant and moviegoer. Most of the selected films will have their Dutch premiere, after being successfully screened at many film festivals worldwide.
