Cinema in a Car? It can only be the NFF in Utrecht!

Last updated by

As we mentioned earlier you can for a short time only watch film while waiting at Utrecht Central Station.

During the Netherlands Film Festival (NFF) from 27 September to 5 October, a number of short films can be enjoyed at Utrecht Central Station. From 12.00 – 21.00 hours, travellers can take a seat every day in the Pop-up Cinema on the first floor.

The NFF takes care of the programming of the films. The premiere of the films in the Pop-up Cinema will take place on Thursday 27 September at 12.00.

The Pop-up Cinema will be opened by Silvia van der Heiden, director of the Netherlands Film Festival and Mirjam Schokker, manager of Utrecht Central Station. Visitors to this opening can win tickets for the premiere film Nobody in the city that can be seen that same night in Pathé Rembrandt at the Dutch Film Festival.

The NFF is a truly Utrecht event, which now starts from the moment you arrive in the city. Besides the Pop-up Cinema, the Velo Electro is also in the station hall. This is a converted Velorex car with screens on the roof. Short trailers of the public film premieres will be shown in the Velo Electro, including Rafaël, Vechtmeisje and Sprekend Nederland.

In the Pop-up Cinema, travellers can get to know what is happening at the NFF for free. Short feature films, documentaries and animated films will be shown,  lasting from 3 to 25 minutes. The cinema is freely accessible and the film tasters will be suitable for all ages.

Station Utrecht Centraal wants to be a place where people are received hospitably and can also have a pleasant time whilst they are there. The Pop-up Cinema is a surprising and contemporary place, where people can wait in a relaxed manner, the perfect pre journey or post arrival mood setter. The NFF Pop-up Cinema is made possible by a contribution from the Ondernemersfonds Utrecht.
