Scene from the film Moonrise kingdom
Movie W is putting on its first film weekend since its near-demise and turbulent move. Art-film fans will be able to enjoy 14 films next weekend.
The films include highlights from 2012 such as the tragicomic Moonrise Kingdom by character director Wes Anderson, a documentary film about Canto ostinato, a work by the composer Simeon ten Holt who died last year, and the award-winning children's film Kauwboy. Black comedy Sightseers is a taster for the next Rotterdam film festival. Finally there will be two slightly older documentaries. Grande Hotel from 2010 is about an abandoned hotel in Mozambique taken over by squatters and The end of the line from 2009 looks at how the world's oceans are being fished to extinction.
You will also be able to enjoy dance performances, music, food and the silent film City Girl, accompanied live by a pianist. Also, this year for the first time there will be a party with dancing on the Saturday evening. It is as if Movie W is saying 'See, we are still alive and kicking.'
