Tilda and daughter Honor Swinton deserved better. As did all of you for that matter. Wow, did the rain pour from the sky. Though, the film trivia quiz was no less hard-fought. And the tent was warm and dry. That’s where opening film The Souvenir by Joanna Hogg was shown. Our photographer was there as well. Take a look!

We won’t be getting a sun-drenched August unfortunately but we’ll still open our terraces every day, and the chefs at the food trucks will keep on grilling. We’ll fire up the hot tub a little hotter, make bonfires, put up an extra parasol, play tunes in the tent and serve hot cocoa. In case of rain, the movie will always screen inside as well.

The tiny Plukkers have lined up The Gruffalo for Pluk MINI. Sunday the 18th from 14.00 at Pluk Amsterdam. But there’s more fun in store. We’ll make our own scary Gruffalo-masks, play mega Mikado and giant Twister and build sand castles on the Pluk beach. We’ll wrap up the afternoon in full swing with the one and only Pluk MINI disco!

We’ve been following the Japanese multitalented Sawako Kabuki for quite some years now. She is known for her super cute, brightly coloured in-your-face films. In 2017 she was our Artist in Focus. This year we asked her to design the festival poster. She said yes straight away. Hurray!

Sure, the films of Don Hertzfeldt may be perfect for a rainy day in, but if you ask us they would’ve gone great with a bit more sun yesterday. Luckily it was very cozy in the big tent.
