Sprouts Film Festival

ecocinema & debut films

In times of a glitching world, with weather extremes and inhumane conflicts intensifying, it can be tempting to avert your gaze. Instead, Sprouts wants to make the cinema a site for peaceful protest by showing newly released ecocinema and socially critical debut films. All selected features and shorts are fiction, because it is our belief that through the power of imagination we can alter our behaviour for the better and rethink our relationship with the more-than-human world. We are here to make you wonder, to inform, to spark resistance and to nurture fresh talent.

Sprouts Film Festival 2024 took place from 7 - 12 May. But luckily we have some Sprouts On Tour events. On 14 & 15 June we have a very special program at the Glass House in Amstelpark at Zone2Source.

In case you missed our festival in Amsterdam, you can check out the best of the fest features and shorts at Movie W in Wageningen, every Wednesday evening for four weeks. Follow us on ︎ @sproutsfilmfestival and Letterboxd @sproutsff to stay up to date!
