Getting inspired by interviews about books, discussions on the festival theme and the big questions of our time, readings of newly written essays or poetry, film screenings and music! During Friday Night Unlimited you chose from twenty programs on six stages at Theater aan het Spui and Filmhuis Den Haag. Each programme lasted between 30 and 60 minutes and was Dutch or English spoken. The programme-schedule for the evening can be downloaded as pdf here.

More stages, more films
In close collaboration with Filmhuis Den Haag, the Winternachten festival scaled up its Friday and Saturday evenings by using not four but six stages and by screening more films. Filmhuis' Zaal 1 and 2 presented films with an introduction or Q&A, while authors tell about the 'Book of their Life' in the Filmhuis café. Zaal 1 and 2 featured performances or discussions by writers and poets; in the theatre foyer, secondary school students presented their poems during the 'Spot on Young Poets' programme; and the pop-up book stand of De Vries van Stockum offered a carefully chosen selection of books and poetry as well as signing sessions.

Tickets for the Winternachten Friday and Saturday
Your Friday or Saturday Night Unlimited ticket gave access to all festival programmes in Theater aan het Spui and Filmhuis Den Haag. In the Filmhuis, the café was open to everyone, also those without tickets. Separate tickets for the Winternachten programmes in the Filmhuis' Zaal 1 and 2 were available via the Filmhuis website or box office (if you do not buy a Friday or Saturday Night Unlimited ticket).
