Amsterdam's Canals
This is a guest post on behalf of Jet2.

For 22 years the Sunsets Film Festival has been Amsterdam’s premier outdoor movie event, with hundreds of locals and tourists gathering on the steps of the Vondelpark pavilion to watch great movies while the sun goes down.

Kicking off on July 29th this year the summer film schedule looks as packed as ever, with classics like Easy Rider, Brief Encounter and the Lost Boys sure to bring in a crowd. Whether planning to visit  Amsterdam with friends, family or a loved one, enjoying a film in the open air is the perfect way to spend a breezy summer evening in the city.

Thirst for Movies

Sunsets Film Festival works in collaboration with the restaurant and bar, Vertigo, meaning cool drinks are available throughout the movie to keep you refreshed. Tickets can be purchased from the EYE Institute up to a week in advance so make sure to check out the movies that are playing during your visit for a memorable experience that will perfectly encapsulate the spirit of Amsterdam itself.

You may be spoiled for choice of things to do in Amsterdam when you arrive though, with such a diverse range of music, film and food festivals taking part throughout the summer.

With so much to see and do, and such cheap flights to Amsterdam available from airlines like, now is the time to pay Amsterdam a visit and see why everyone that visits can’t wait to go back!

Have you been to a previous Sunsets Film Festival? What did you see? What else is there to do in Amsterdam?
