Pluk on Tour @ Hembrug Zaandam
After a few summer evenings on the roof of the Volkshotel, we travel slightly north, to Zaandam. We settle on the industrial Hembrug site in the former projectiles and shells factory on the North Sea Canal. We will build an attractive pop up cinema there, which we will fill with comfy deckchairs. July 9, 10 and 11. Are you there?

Plenty brollies at Pluk
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!

Rain? Now what..?
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.

A day for the minis
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!

“I wanted to let the audience and my characters become friends”
In And Your Bird Can Sing, three young adults flutter trough the streets of Japanese port city Hakodate. In this lighthearted drama, written and directed by filmmaker Shô Miyake, a love triangle unfolds between two men and a woman. They play pool and ping pong, rummage through a supermarket and dance drunkenly in a night club together.

“I often draw piles of naked people”
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!
