Film weekend ‘Into the Wilderness’
01 March 2020
The film weekend ‘Into the Wilderness’ (Naar de Wildernis) on the island of Vlieland is organized especially for people who love stunning landscapes, spectacular images of nature and touching stories. The best nature stories are shown on the silver screen in two consecutive weekends (end of February and beginning of March). It is a selection of movies and documentaries in which man faces up to, or lives in harmony with, nature. As a special feature the exclusive teaser of the impressive documentary about the Wadden Sea called Silence of the Tides, will be shown. This documentary revolves around the continuous ‘breathing’ of the Wadden region. The tides, cycles and contrasts take centre stage, but the relationship between man and nature is also shown, set against a background of fog, wind, water, and land, beautiful light and the ever present horizon.
Over the course of the weekend, you can explore the wonders of the Wadden Sea, a World Heritage Site, as well as the beautiful natural landscape of Vlieland, such as De Vliehors, a huge sand flat on the island’s western tip.
There is a boat to the Wadden Island from Harlingen three times a day. It takes about 90 minutes to get to Vlieland. You can check www.rederij-doeksen.nl for departure times. For these festival weekends, there are special packages including the boat trip and accommodation in one of the wonderful hotels on the island.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, many facilities in and near National Parks and nature reserves are closed. Many excursions and events have also been cancelled. Please make sure to always check the site of the company or organizer before you leave to avoid disappointment.
