MASH-UP! 2018


Join us at the anniversary 5th edition of MASH-UP! in Kunsthal Rotterdam: an evening combining film, art and a party!

We start the evening off with an exclusive pre-premiere screening of the prize-winning film Girl by Flemish filmmaker Lukas Dhont. Afterwards you can roam the exhibition halls of the Kunsthal to see – or rather: feel, hear, experience – a new extensive exhibition entitled Action <-> Reaction: 100 years of kinetic art. The night ends in the Kunsthal Café with a wonderful party to celebrate our five years of putting art and film together.


Girl is the sensational feature-film debut of Flemish filmmaker Lukas Dhont, and tells the story of Lara, a 15-year-old girl born in the body of a boy dreaming to become a ballerina. The leading role is played by the promising young actor Victor Polster, whose impressive performance was awarded with the Un Certain Regard Prize for Best Actor at Cannes Film Festival. That’s not the only prize Girl took home from Cannes 2018; the film also won the FIPRESCI Prize, the Caméra d’Or and the Queer Palm for best LGBT film.


Action <-> Reaction covers a wide range of kinetic art revolving around light and movement. Works by over 80 different artists, from its early applications around 100 years ago until the present day, offer an impressive retrospective of art that appeals to all the senses. By interacting with the art you’ll experience the most unexpected observations. Check out some images of the exhibition above or click here to learn more about the exhibition. The exhibition stage will be open at 21.30 hours. You are welcome to enjoy some drinks while you wait. 

While browsing through the exhibition space, enjoy the music of one of Rotterdam's finest artists in the Kunsthal Café: Lisa Luka.


The evening ends in the Kunsthal Café where we will party into the night celebrating the five-year collaboration between IFFR and Kunsthal Rotterdam.
