We hope you’ll enjoy this extra episode of the Amsterdam Film Show in December 2020, we’re trying out bringing you the AFS more often, not just once a month. For this special edition:

  • we have three new guest reviewers from UvA film studies: Bogna Bochińska, Zoë Verbeke and Sharon Canals, who all get to share their thoughts on a super interesting new film, Promising Young Woman
  • look back on our reviewers favourite film screenings in Amsterdam from the past year
  • look ahead to what 2021 film releases they can’t wait to hit Amsterdam cinemas (when they open)  
  • an online social screening we can all enjoy for Christmas.
