Film by the Sea 2023–
Every year in September, Vlissingen briefly becomes the backdrop for (inter)national film stars. During this period, Cine City cinema organises the International Film Festival Film by the Sea. The festival screens a total of more than 120 films from all over the world, specially imported for a unique showing during the festival.
The event is more than just a film and literature festival: besides the many premieres, it also focuses on vulnerable cinema. Various awards are also presented to individuals from the film and art world, and there is an extensive educational programme, as well as workshops and several talk shows.
Film by the Sea thus attracts thousands of people to Vlissingen every year to enjoy a good film on a pleasant evening.
