The Dutch Book Fest is turning 65. And it’s still alive and kicking.
In 2016 the Dutch Book Fest celebrated its 65th anniversary. This historical and cultural milestone is marked with a documentary series about its origin, its history and the importance of this hugely discussed and prestigious party in the Netherlands.
For the past 65 years, an invite to this event goes hand in hand with literary recognition because anybody who is invited is officially a part of the honorary selection!We followed the organizer and his team for this fest in 2015 up until the day after the anniversary party in 2016.
Broadcast in the Netherlands: NPO2 (2016)
