Avant-premieres of some of the cinematic highlights of the year: international award-winners and festival favourites that will be released in Dutch cinemas after IFFR.

Limelight presents avant-premieres of some of the cinematic highlights of the year. Here, approximately thirty films that will be released in Dutch arthouse cinemas, have their first screening. Recently, Limelight included many films by directors with a long history with IFFR such as Miguel Gomes, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Naomi Kawase, Pablo Trapero, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, as well as successful new filmmakers such as Martin Zandvliet or Ben Wheatley.

The directors of the selected films will attend IFFR and present their films to the audience in the same fashion as with all major sections of the Festival. Through Limelight, IFFR will cultivate existing close relationships with Dutch distributors and filmmakers as it continues in its commitment to supporting the release of high quality feature films in the Netherlands and internationally.
