Eastern Neighbours Film Festival (ENFF) presents a selection of recent and high quality films from East and Southeast Europe; countries with relatively small, but powerful film industries. The festival focuses on productions which would often otherwise not be screened in theaters in the Netherlands. The carefully compiled program provides insight into the reality of the cultural, political and socio-economic conditions in the region, and the development of its local younger and older talents. The program includes feature films, documentaries, short films and animations. It connects different genres and themes; from current developments in cinema, to historical specialties; from experimental documentaries to art house films. The festival as well engages current debates and questions regarding film aesthetics, ethics, social issues, film theory and artistic forms. The ENFF annually takes place in November in Filmhuis The Hague, and goes On Tour in Amsterdam (Rialto, de Balie, Kriterion), Rotterdam (Kino), Utrecht (Louis Hartlooper Complex) and in Nijmegen (Lux).
