GIJFF film for schools

Our special educational screening at this year’s festival is Secrets of War – a deeply moving coming-of-age film set in Nazi-occupied Holland – suitable for children aged 10 and over.

After the film, we’re hosting a Q&A session with two special guests – the film’s screenwriter, Karen van Holst Pellekaan, and Holocaust survivor Nikolaus Kamp.
