Uitkijk Specials // Sexy Cinema

In the evenings you prefer to watch good films in the dark and in good company: lights are dimmed, curtains closed and the familiar cinema fridge with beer for 2, - gets a new life. Uitkijk Specials, every Tuesday evening at 22:00, with the best films that change every two months on the basis of a different theme. In May it is time for Sexy Cinema.

Spring has started and also in the Uitkijk it starts to heat up. Outside it gets hotter, but inside their theatre it's almost burning. Sexy Cinema is all about sex in film. Be seduced by the most summery, subtle, playful, explicit and sexy sex on the silver screen. Sex, sex and another sex. Sex!

Cineville Tip of the Month //  Radiance

You only see the beauty of things when they fade away. Like snow before the sun or a love interrupted. Appreciate every moment thrown at you for it might never happen again. Radiance takes you on a journey of what cannot just be seen but has to be felt.

Netflix Essentials

Dear White People // Volume 2

This show is woke and unapologetically honest about racism in all of it forms. You may not agree with the points they make but they do make you think about how we treat others and perceive ourselves. Volume 2 is out now, so get on it!


Being extremely rich isn't easy and the more money you have, the more drama flocks your way. Dynasty is a remake put into a new sassy, dramatic, female empowered jacket about exuberant wealth and all the struggles that come with it.

The UvA invites all to a symposium on public security under algorithmic control. On Wednesday the 6th of June from 10:00 - 17:00 at the Auditorium of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

Governments and law enforcement are increasingly using technology and algorithms to predict where and when illegal activities are likely to occur. The fast-paced implementation of these predictive systems has them silently entering the public realm without discussion of their implications and adverse effects; solidifying structural inequality, creating new geographies of violence and dimensions of exclusion.

To address these matters and further questions of organizing public safety and security in the age of big data, the students and staff of the master Non-Linear Narrative of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague have organized this symposium, bringing together in conversation a diversity of professional perspectives, including philosophers, academics, designers, and information technology experts.
