Mission / description This is our third year! We have rebranded successfully from the Norwich Radical Film festival to the Manifesto Film Festival located in Amsterdam. Different name..same powerful vision.

The Manifesto Film Festival would love to introduce itself to the city of Amsterdam...this is our first year here, but not our first in showcasing cinema that is socially and culturally thought-provoking while concurrently exemplifying either the existing or retrospective zeitgeist. With over 200 films of all genres, from all around the world, we are convinced there is a film available that will intrigue every viewer!

The Disunited States of America was a huge success with 9 venues and over 200 films in the "Venice of the North"!

2019's Country of focus will be Kurdistan...a territory that is not official recognized as its own sovereign nation, however, should be....

Again, films all over the globe from all genres are welcome here. we love great stories, powerful character development and innovative filming. We love filmmakers to participate and be in the mix as we are truly the filmmakers' festival! wonderful social networking events, parties and trailblazing cinema as well as retrospectives and historical contextualization! More information to follow but we wanted to open up submissions as soon as possible as many requests have already come in to participate next season!
