Ambacht in Beeld / Craft in Focus
Documentary film festival
Zaandam, The Netherlands – Filmtheater De Fabriek
May 18 - 19, 2013


The Craft in Focus international festival of films on crafts will take place in Zaandam from 18 to 19 May 2013. The film festival is organized by the Windy Miller Foundation.
Craft in Focus offers inspirational documentary films on crafts and craftsmanship from across the globe, as well as thought-provoking lectures by interesting guest speakers, a Russian student film competition, and an in-depth filmmaking workshop on local crafts. Since in 2013 The Netherlands celebrates its long-lasting relations with Russia, there is a special program of films on Russian crafts.


We invite producers and filmmakers worldwide to submit films on crafts and craftsmanship in its broadest sense for screening during the festival.


Besides the Russian student film competition set out at various Russian film schools, the festival has no competition program.
