Eindelijk is het zover! Eén week nadat de films gemaakt zijn worden ze allemaal vertoond in de Natlab bioscoop. Voor veel filmmakers is het de eerste keer dat ze hun eigen film in goed gezelschap op groot scherm kunnen bekijken. Het is mischien wel de mooiste ervaring om in de zaal te zitten en te voelen wat jouw film met het publiek doet. Magisch!


The time has finally come! One week after the films are made, they are all shown in the Natlab cinema. For many of the filmmakers, this is the first time that they can watch their own film on a big screen in good company.
