March 6th: Het schnitzel paradijs
Martin Koolhoven's Schnitzel Paradise (Dutch: Het Schnitzelparadijs) is a 2005 Dutch comedy film about Dutch-Moroccan Nordip Dounia who starts working in a restaurant kitchen and falls in love with Agnes Meerman, niece of the hotel's manager. Nordip has to overcome not only Agnes's family's prejudices but also his father's wishes as to his future. The film was a huge success in The Netherlands (it was the highest grossing Dutch film in 2005 in The Netherlands).

April 10th: De hel van 63
When you think Holland you think iceskating. This movie is about the most (world) famous longrange iceskating race in the Netherlands, the 'Elfstedentocht'. Elfstedentocht literally means 'Eleven cities race'. In the year 1963 the weather was so horrible that participating in the race could possible cost you your life. Still more than 10.000 people joined the race, of which only 69 made the finish line (no the other 9931 didn't die). This is why the movie is named 'The hell of 63'. Because the last elfstedentocht was already more than 20 years ago, every year when predictions of extremely cold weather are announced, the Dutch media can't stop talking about a possible elfstedentocht.
fact: Current King Willem finished the elfstedentocht under the pseudoniem 'van Buren' in 1986.
