About the author
Excited by adventuring, discovering and exploring everything. If like me, you’re curious and excited about new trends finding their way to Amsterdam- then read on.

Film has this incredible immersive ability that allows us to get lost in imagined worlds. Sometimes so real it’s heartbreaking; so fantastical it’s mesmerising; so twisted it’s terrifying. Rosy romances. Extraordinary scenarios. Subtle nuances. Comical. Dramatic. Action-packed. Dreamlike. Or downright nightmarish. A movie can do all of this through storytelling visuals, direction, sound, cinematography, design and acting. What better way to celebrate the worlds thought up in film than an 11-day festival dedicated to doing just that?

The Imagine Film festival is back at the EYE film institute, from the 14th to the 24th of April. The theme of the event is ‘building dreams and nightmares’. Its comprehensive program delves into the architecture imagined in film and the structure of telling stories across film genres.

The mind is like the universe. It’s constantly expanding.

As well as the jam-packed film program, there are masterclasses with Dutch director Alex van Warmerdam, production designer Anshuman Prasad and a new edition of EYE on Art.

Explore the three exhibitions running alongside in the EYE arena: And… Action!, a collection of contemporary architectural photographs, Virtual Cities, a reflection upon urban space from 3 artists and Snapshot, an interactive virtual reality experience.

There are a myriad of events and showcasing of films that explore the theme of the festival; something for every film lover. And just added to the program is The Man Who Fell to Earth; a young David Bowie in this science fiction classic. For more program information visit Imagine Film Festival’s website. Get lost in film. It’s wonderful.
