1. About 013 CIFF
What are the dates for this year's 013 Cinecitta International Film Festival?
The third edition runs from Wednesday, 13 October through Sunday, 17 October 2021.
What does the ‘013’ stand for?
The ‘013’ in the Festival’s name refers to Tilburg’s area code, which is also the city’s affectionate nickname throughout the Netherlands.
Where do the Festival screenings take place?
All screenings take place at the Cinecitta cinema complex in central Tilburg. The address is Willem II straat 29, 5038 BA Tilburg. See www.cinecitta.nl to explore the splendid venue and its amenities, and to see examples of the art house’s year-round programming.

6. Safety Precautions
How is the Festival dealing with the coronavirus pandemic?
Thanks to the addition of our two new screening rooms last year, the films can screen in a way that respects all social-distancing rules put in place to protect the health of our patrons. These rules mean that we will have 90 seats in Cinema 1, 30 seats in Cinemas 3 and 4 combined, and 30 seats in Cinemas 5 and 6 combined. The screenings in Cinemas 3 and 4 will occur simultaneously, and the same goes for screenings in Cinemas 5 and 6, allowing us to screen each film three times (Cinema 1, Cinemas 3+4, and Cinemas 5+6) while maintaining the new safety standards.
