Off-Screener in the Spotlight // Maryam
This girl is new to Off-Screen and already spreading the love. Since our Winter Wonder Weekend to Prague her smile is seen more and more at Off-Screen events. From bringing possible new first-year students to 't Hok, to dancing her heart out at the borrels. Maryam is here to stay and we're grateful for that. Here's to you Maryam!

Beautifully Boozed //
It is all around us, ever-present, yet we tend not to comment on it. We see it on TV, we hear it on the radio, we stream it, we impose it on ourselves, we subconsciously embrace it; at least most of us. Your 5-year old nephew can get absorbed by it, your 70-year old grandma probably in some sense already is. As are you and I. It is not capitalism I speak of, nor is it sex in media or some other ubiquitous phenomenon. It is the romanticisation of substance abuse, and alcohol in particular...

Cheers to Fantasea //
Ahhhh the first off-screen party, the one an off- screener remembers dearly and the one you usually never forget... or so I thought. With the cold weather, the only thing keeping us warm are the memories of great times, intoxicated nights and good music. So let's warm up and dive into the night of Fantasea!
After all, mornings are made for tea and contemplation...
Tips & Reviews
A lot of things happen within and out of Off-Screen, so sometimes it can be a bit impossible to attend every event. With these tips and reviews you'll always know where to go and what you've missed!
When in Prague //
In the very early morning of the 9th of November, 50 lucky Off-Screen members gathered in front of the Victoria hotel ready to embark on a weekend full of wonders. Armed with coffee, good spirit, and most importantly: beer, the trip was off to a great start. However, traffic gods disagreed, making our 11 hour long trip a 14 hour long one, ending at 11 p.m. at our hostel in Prague...
Winter Efteling //
Please raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by Holle Bolle Gijs.
The greedy bastard just keeps sort of passive aggressively shouting at you to put your, “papier hier”. No but really, as someone who has lived her whole life in The Netherlands but never had been to the Efteling before - I was kind of psyched to finally see what all the fuss was about. And I was most definitely not disappointed. Could we just consider the Efteling to be the Disneyworld of The Netherlands? Cause honestly, winter in The Netherlands can get rather shitty. Snow? Nah, how about some wet mush with loads of rain and freezing temperatures. So winter can't really get better in The Netherlands than looking death in the eye before 90 degree drop in the Baron whilst you freeze your ass off, stuffing yourself with broodjes Unox, warming up with hot cocoa or glühwein and enjoying an enchanting trip in the droomvlucht. I mean the Efteling is kind of magical and it just gets better when you’re visiting on a Tuesday – 'cause fuck queueing – with your favourite Off Screeners.
