Imagine sees the fantastic genre as a rich source of thought experiments, often anticipating or reflecting on social and technological developments. In in-depth programs, the festival offers backgrounds, history and context, and connects fantastic film with current developments in society.
Imagine brings together filmmakers, guests, journalists and the general public. We identify new talent, present new work by established makers and show classics and forgotten gems. In addition, we offer Dutch filmmakers a platform for their projects and put them in the international spotlight.
Imagine is an accessible, accessible and public-friendly festival, in which the public is actively involved. We present serious topics, but always in an attractive and accessible way. The festival program is a mix of films, workshops, masterclasses, games and more, for a variety of visitors. With a 38-year history and extensive network, Imagine acts as a curator and guide for newcomers and seasoned genre fans alike.
