From 10 to 14 November 2021, at the 41st edition of the Noordelijk Film Festival, we welcome film lovers from all over the world at familiar and new festival locations. You will of course find us again at Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie and Slieker Film, where we feel completely at home. But this year you can also enjoy the exceptional atmosphere of the festival at three new festival locations.

Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie

Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie

De Harmonie has long been the atmospheric festival heart of the Noordelijk Film Festival. During the five-day festival, this location offers the largest selection of films, which are screened in the Main Hall (Grote zaal) and Rabobank Hall (Rabobank zaal). The Accent Hall (Accent zaal) serves as a location for several special events. The Arriva Foyer of the theatre is a place for socialising, recovering and recharging. In the evening, live artists take over the stage here and open up the dance floor.

Address: Ruiterskwartier 4, Leeuwarden

Slieker Film

Slieker Film is also returning this year. Throughout the year, film theatre Slieker shows the latest arthouse films, documentaries, short films and archive films. For the Noordelijk Film Festival, the film theatre is transformed into a festival location. From Wednesday 10 to Sunday 14 November, almost all Noorderkroon films will be screened here in the Blue, Green and Pink Hall, as well as a wide selection of the festival’s main programme and Ecocinema.

Address: Wilhelminaplein 92, Leeuwarden

Pathé Leeuwarden

This year for the first and last time, a selection of the Northern Film Festival will be shown at Pathé Tivoli. This Pathé location in Leeuwarden will close soon, when the new Pathé location at the Ruiterskwartier opens. From Wednesday 10 November to Sunday 14 November, a varied selection of films from the festival programme will be shown here.

Theater De Koornbeurs

De Koornbeurs is the theatre in the historic centre of Franeker. It is the first time that the Noordelijk Film Festival will be held in Franeker.
