Flicks Short Film Festival 2018

Flicks is a short film festival that stems from the Cultural Student Centre Usva in Groningen and gives national and international student filmmakers the opportunity to participate in a challenging and fun initiative. 
The committee has selected the best out over 250 movies and they will be screened at the festival in March 2018. There is no specific theme for the films. During the festival there will be a jury to select the best film overall. We are looking forward to show you the work of talented student filmmakers from all over the world at this year's festival!

The University of Groningen and the UMCG have expressed a shared ambition to create a lively city campus on the North side of the UMCG complex. The Student Culture Centre Usva will be a part of this development.

The target for opening the doors of the new location is the 2019/20 study year-the year in which Usva will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. A start will be made on a concept design for the new building in early 2017.

At a minimum, the facility will have a multifunctional theatre (ca. 200 people), various spaces for courses and a modern café. Where possible, spaces will be arranged so that they can be used in the daytime for university classes.

For the future, Student Culture Centre Usva will continue to develop its young, challenging and international program of activities, and make a strong commitment to fortify its current cooperative initiatives with cultural partners in the city.
