In addition to our programming during the annual film festival, we also screen an IFFG Special almost every month: from surprise films with surprise locations, to films with special speakers, to films in combination with music, dance or delicious food. Look back on the most recent specials on this page or go to one of the earlier years to view even more specials. For more photos of the IFFG Specials, visit our Facebookpage

November 11, 2021 | Month of Respect: Mitra

On Thursday evening 11 November we organized the annual Month of Respect Special in collaboration with the Municipality of Gorinchem. Almost 100 visitors poured into the room of the Nieuwe Doelen and watched the impressive film Mitra. The question that runs through the film like a red bear: can you really leave your history behind and really forgive someone?

Director Kaweh Modiri came to Gorinchem especially to talk to us after the film. He based the film, and his book of the same name, on the life of his own mother. The story crosses borders and generations and makes you think. This was definitely noticeable in the conversations that followed in the IFFG Filmcafé.
