Word from EYE Film Institute Netherlands today: it's official. The 2014 Orphan Film Symposium will be in April, dovetailed with the Amsterdam Film Biennale.
However, we won't know for a few weeks the exact dates in April 2014. I'm guessing first half of the month.
The theme of Orphans 9 will be announced in mid-October (this year). But good ideas and pitches for presentations are always welcome.
