Inspired by the idea of a cultural revival, we recognize that the digital revolution creates the conditions for a New Renaissance, opening a door for a different set of stories to be told. Film is a unique medium, and the New Renaissance Film Festival's mission is to support and champion the best upcoming filmmakers and screenwriters in this new era, to fulfill their dream in telling their stories.




This three day festival is organized by JAN HENDRIK VERSTRATEN and MASSIMO BARBATO who are themselves filmmakers and writers. They believe at the heart of every great film is a great story, one that will inspire an audience and hopefully help to shape culture in a positive way.

NRFF Amsterdam has several categories for International and LGBT filmmakers and screenwriters.


We were featured recently in the London METRO’s list of TOP UK FILM FESTIVALS among some very distinguished company, including Raindance and Aesthetica. Our top industry judges from the UK and USA enable us to keep standards consistently high. 


This is our inaugural festival in the Netherlands and NRFF will take place on the 3rd, 4th and 5th MARCH 2017, at LAB111.  This great venue is close to the famous Vondelpark in Amsterdam, a city known for its diversity and innovation in the creative arts. We will screen up to 120 films in two cinemas over the course of the weekenD, including a fun COCKTAIL HOUR and AWARDS CEREMONY. The festival will be open to the public and ticket sales will be announced on the website in due course.


Running alongside the festival, will be a SCREENWRITING COMPETITION, a series of MASTERCLASSES by film industry experts, and a PANEL DISCUSSION.
