Cinema under the stars
Now in its 11th edition, the festival has seen a massive growth in popularity in recent years.
Free to the public, Pluk de Nacht offers a quality selection of unreleased indie films, major motion pictures, art installations and mixed-media displays in a quest to reach audiences through alternative distribution methods.
Pluk de Nacht doesn't just focus on one genre or film-style in particular.
Rather, a mix of anything from romantic comedies and cult classics to blockbuster action and independent documentaries await visitors.
In addition to the gigantic outdoor screens, the festival provides lounge chairs, sets up concession stands and offers small side activities, creating a hybrid of carnival, cinema and disco in one event!
› Films begin as soon as it starts to get dark, usually around 9pm.
› The festival terrain is open every day from 4pm.
