5 November - 2021
Although the festival has yet to begin and ticket sales have just started, we are going to talk about the closing film, because believe us: this film is really worth the announcement. This year, we are closing the festival with a stunner: Spencer. A new film by the much acclaimed Chilean director Pablo Larráin, in which top actress Kristen Stewart takes on the role of Princess Diana.
Spencer is a depiction of what might have happened during the crucial and fateful days surrounding Christmas in the early 1990s. The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since cooled. Despite rumours of affairs and divorce, the Christmas festivities continue at the Queen’s Sandringham estate. There is eating and drinking and hunting. Diana knows the game, but she decides that her loveless marriage to Prince Charles is not working and she must deviate from the path laid out for her as a future queen.
The film will be screened on Sunday evening 14 November at 19:45 in the Grote zaal of Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie. Prior to the film, the audience winner of the festival will be announced and the festival will be officially closed.
