Movies that Matter Festival 2020: Cancelled

March 12, 2020

Following the guidelines of the Dutch government regarding the global Covid-19 outbreak we decided to cancel the 2020 edition of the Movies that Matter Festival, from 20 to 28 March in The Hague. The health and safety of our guests, audience and the festival team are our key priority. Meeting and dialogue are key elements of our festival. As such we are currently not considering to organise online alternatives. Unfortunately, postponing our festival is not an option, given the substantial programming of films in combination with international guests and the insecure situation regarding the virus.

In case you already bought a ticket, you can reclaim the costs, by sending an email, including proof of payment, name and address data, and bank account number to

With a very heavy heart we unfortunately have no other choice than to cancel this edition of our annual festival. We prepared a fantastic film programme, with many premieres, impressive guests and human rights activists. This is a huge disappointment for everyone, but we understand and respect the decision of the authorities.

We hope to welcome you at the next Movies that Matter Festival, from 19 to 28 March 2021.
