LHC Open Screen

The Louis Hartlooper Complex (LHC) frequently receives requests from all over the country by upcoming film talent to screen their work. So we came up with the idea to organise a day when we make our largest screen available to film talent. To have a platform to show film on a large screen is inspiring to film makers and therefore something we consider very important. The second edition of LHC Open Screen (in Dutch: LHC Open Doek) will be held on Sunday, June 24 2018. This time we leave it to the audience to vote for the winner. The winning film will be shown on a regular basis throughout the summer. The proceeds of the day will be awarded tot the winner to promote their film.


Filmmakers have until April 15 2018 to submit their work through roos@hartlooper.nl. The LHC reserves the right to make a selection from the submitted works according to length of the program and based on the Terms and Conditions. The complete program will be announced on May 1 2018. Tickets will be available from the same date.
