ENFF is back with an exciting new edition of Film & Class program! Schools and universities are invited again to take part in the educational program by screening our films in their classrooms, and students visiting Filmhuis Den Haag to watch amazing films and participate in masterclasses with distinguished guests, screenwriters and producers.

This year’s Film & Class film is incredibly touching and personal documentary MY OWN PRIVATE WAR by Lidija Zelovic: a must-see for anyone who wants to learn more about their own place in the world. Dwelling into her own past and conflicting accounts of the war within her family, Zelovic’s film tells us a much wider story than just one about how war in Bosnia changed her life for good. Searching for the truth, coming to terms with the past and finding a way to move forward is what Zelovic is trying to achieve during her difficult but liberating personal journey.

Screenings can be organized at schools or universities, where a guest speaker or a moderator will be present. The film and the detailed film guide are provided free of charge. Interested in bringing film into your class? Contact us via
