NEW DISCOUNT PARTNERS: CJP & GRIFFOEN!
CJP is a platform for culture lovers. They love culture in all forms and want to inspire others to do the same. That is why they make a selection from the cultural offer and write about, they organize cultural events and also work together with cultural partners. For more than 50 years, they give discounts at (film) festivals, concerts, theaters and museums. And culture is more than what happens in theaters and concert halls or on festival meadows. So that’s why, on top of everything, CJP also offers discounts on travels, insurances and stores such as Apple and Aktiesport. The ideal discount partner!
Griffioen is a theatre and cultural center located in Amstelveen who works in collaboration with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), which screens movies, hosts shows (comedy, music, etc.) as well as offering all sorts of fun and interesting courses, like yoga, dance, and acting classes.

Media- and Educational Activities Committee
"Off-Screen went to the artsy city of Berlin, Germany between the 27th of February and the 1st of March, for the Berlin Film Festival: ‘Berlinale’. This being a traditional Off-Screen trip, again the four days which we were there, were filled with activities and many memorable moments. The 4 movies that we watched; ‘Alice Junior’, ‘Always Amber’, ‘Paradise Drifters’ and ‘Kokon’ were all very interesting and were connected with a central theme of finding gender identity and confusion of youth..."

My Take on Murphy's Law
By: Alexia Radu
Let me set this straight: I don’t believe that the universe has a fixed agenda and that all the bad luck is somehow predetermined. Regardless, that is not to say that sometimes, series of particularly unfortunate events do not make you ponder whether the cosmic powers are out there to get you or not: in a more or less jokingly manner. In broad strokes, February was one of those months that seem to be especially designed to make you a pessimist. (In my case, a good excuse to bitch about pretty much everything). There’s really no need for a simplification of complicated issues here because all events can be summed up in one word: cancelled.

Noa’s confessional: a place where you can spill the tea and tell all your sins.
In this sacrament, Noa can forgive sins in Off-Screen’s name. With all the crazy stuff happening within Off-Screen’s walls, it was about time for us to have a safe place to tell your most embarrassing, weird, unusual and striking stories for them to be heard by all of us. So from now on, when something special happens to you, you have something on your mind or there’s something else that you really want to share with the rest of Off-Screen, send an email to email@example.com, tell me in person or reveal it to me in a dream.
I decided that, just like in a real confessional, everything should be and stay anonymous. And remember, this is a safe place where everyone can come to terms with his/her sins, where judgement is a word that doesn’t belong in our vocabulary, and where we can all enjoy your embarrassing stories.
