During the tour of Dutch film theaters, the Netherlands Film Festival (NFF) presents the film Zomervacht, based on the book of the same name by Jaap Robben's bestseller. With Micha Hulshof, Jarne Heylen and Joël in 't Veld.

Zomervacht is the closing film of the festival. Learn more about the film during this special NFF premiere. For example, director Joren Molter shares his insights and motives in a personal video message.

During a sweltering summer holiday, thirteen-year-old Brian is left with the care of his big brother Lucien, who is seventeen, who is severely mentally disabled. As lonely Brian craves warmth and affection from his father, he is forced to grow up. But how do you take care of someone if you don't know what they need? How do you make the right choices when you still have so much to discover?

Zomervacht is the first feature film by director Joren Molter, whose graduation film Greetings from Kropsdam was selected for 54 film festivals worldwide in 2016.

You may know the Netherlands Film Festival from the Golden Calves, but there is much more! From Friday 22 to Friday 29 September 2023 it is time again for the Dutch Film Festival in Utrecht.
